Cut by lapidary artist Julez Buell, purveyor of fine stones and crystals, is a lovely example of copper in matrix. There was no other choice but to wrap this cabochon in copper to complete the circle. The interesting shape with slick bevel is accented by the wire weaving. Patina has been applied to enhance the weave details and add warmth and depth to the piece, and it has been polished to a lustre where both the wire and the copper in the cabochon have the opportunity to shine.
The matrix of the stone is black and grey, which only serves to highlight the copper within. The pendant measures approximately 2 1/2 inches long and 7/8 inch wide, and includes the pictured 18 inch chain. All pieces ship in a decorative box, tied with a beautiful satin bow, ready to gift to yourself or someone special.
