Tom and Pat Bauman live and collaborate on their wonderfully dimensional jewelry in Asheville, North Carolina.
This stunning piece begins with a small, oxidized sterling Ridgelines piece, followed by the warm and organic-looking reticulated bronze, and finally a labradorite set into a hand-made bezel.
It's difficult to capture the magic of the stone in a picture, as it changes with the light, going from golden to almost blue.
18 in. sterling chain; pendant is 1½ in. long.
Artist statement included.
