Tom and Pat Bauman live and collaborate on their wonderful jewelry in Asheville, North Carolina.
Tom and Pat compliment each other perfectly, and their constantly evolving jewelry designs show it. This pendant is one of their more "simple" pieces: gold-flecked, deep-blue lapis lazuli, set in a sterling bezel, and framed in sterling, with a thin coil of bronze accenting the one side. The asymmetrical teardrop shape of this pendant beautifully highlights the uniqueness of this stone!
18 in. sterling silver chain; pendant is 1 in. wide, 11/4 in. long (hangs 1 3/4 inches from the chain).
Artist statement included.
