cinco elementos necklaces
Cinco elementos handcrafted necklace featuring different geometric shapes, each its own little shadowbox. Each handmade pendant features either 23k Gold, Onyx, Lapis Lazuli, or Jasper or bright resin colors. Each of these fun colors gives a luminous bright radiance in a fun, and modern design with a shadow box effect.
Each of these American artisan handcrafted 925 sterling silver jewelry pieces is handmade in the USA. The jewelry is made with an inlay (semi-precious gemstone or glass ground into a fine sand with a mortar and pestle) of resin and crushed stone or glass. A thin layer of resin is evenly poured over each unique design. Followed by creating a porcelain-like paste by combining the powdered materials as previously described with resin. This lightweight paste is then packed into the back of each bezel and design.
This process is reminiscent of "scagliola," the ancient Roman art of mixing ground marble and granite dust with plaster. This blend of old and new techniques allows the artisan to create jewelry that is bold, lightweight, modern, yet a throwback to the past.
