Citrine and Sterling Pendant
Designer: Hugo Rodriguez
Hugo Rodriguez, owner of Platella Silver, shows how to make a simple but stunning citrine and satin-finished sterling silver pendant in just a few hours. He first designed the piece on paper and, using a plastic template of standard shapes, he created a sweeping, elongated free-form, pointed teardrop, adding a long “tail” that forms the bail. Then he finished the piece with a brushed texture and highly polished back. From Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist, April 2010.
