sol mosaico pendant
Grand and mini sol (image below) mosaico pendant featuring either 23k Gold, Onyx, Lapis Lazuli, or Jasper or bright resin colors. Each of these fun colors in jewelry gives a luminous bright radiance in a fun, yet classic design.
Each of these handcrafted USA 925 sterling silver jewelry pieces are handmade by an American designer and artisan. 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. The next step in the hand made process is to create 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.
Note: necklace chain not included, we offer many chain options in the Chains section.
