Purple Salvia Chalcedony - New Design of the Week
The "Design of the Week" through January 28th is handcrafted with textured sterling silver and Purple Salvia Chalcedony. I call this sterling silver texture "rough stone" as it is created by actually hammering the silver into some of my rough rock that I have here in the studio. I love this texture, as the patina that stays in the recessed areas adds such a nice contrast to the shine of the smoother areas.
Purple Salvia Chalcedony comes from Mexico and this is a higher-grade version of this stone showing different shades of lavenders. The mix of the silver patina and the soft lavender worked out to such a nice combination. Just a touch of color - a soft neutral mix of colors.
**All stones are hand cut and polished in my studio.
