This exquisite necklace is named Black Magic. The top stone is Apache Gold found in the United Verde Mine in Jerome, Arizona. The black is a Clorite Shist, the shiny gold/silver is Chalcopyrite. The bottom stone is onyx, a gemstone found in various regions of the world including Yemen, Argentina, Australia, Canada, and the USA. Both are set in fine silver bezels and backs, sterling silver twigs and findings, and the artist's signature pearl.
Total pendant size is approximately 2.25". Comes on an adjustable 18" sterling silver chain.
Handcrafted by Shirley Price of Indio, California.
A cool elegance and soothing balance draws the viewer into Shirley's limited edition, fine silver collection. The Asian-inspired pieces announce the beautiful symmetry of line and color. Her designs express the visual and emotional relationship between the metal and stones, thereby establishing the best possible marriage of the two. They are the melding of contemporary with the best of heritage, delivering pieces that are commanding when viewed, dramatic when worn.
Free-form, hand-cut, hand-polished cabochons are selected for the depth of color and intriguing textures. These are set with fine and sterling silver. A single pearl on each piece has become my recognized signature. My pieces are often named for a virtue; grace, gratitude, joy, happiness, and peace.
