Combine lovely blue Pectolite (Larimar) with a peach pearl in this elegant sterling silver leaf pendant design.

Required Materials:

  • Pectolite (Larimar) rough or slab; or purchased cabochon if you aren’t a cutter
  • Sterling silver flat wire 6mm x perimeter of stone x 13 gauge
  • 20 gauge sterling sheet —enough to back the stone and make the leaf; about 4"
  • 2 x 2mm square sterling wire; 6 inches to roll out to about 12 in the mill
  • 18K tubing or metal of choice
  • Round diamond to fit the tubing — I used a .25ct diamond

Tools:

  • Lapidary unit (Genie® from Diamond Pacific Corp was my choice)
  • trim or ring saw
  • lapidary polishing compound (cerium oxide works well on blue pectolite)
  • gemstone templates or a freehand design
  • general bench tools
  • Fretz® 5 Forming Stake Set or other tools that will fit the shape needed
  • Liver of Sulfur
  • Chinese White


Technique: Lapidary, Metalsmithing
