Pure Copper and Jet Pendant - Commission piece

Index   Price: Commission Piece. POA for similar piece.

As with all commission work, there are three key factors involved. These are:
  • what the commissioner would like to receive;
  • any technical limitations to achieving that; and
  • budget.
Once these factors have been established, the only limit is the combined imaginations of the commissioner and the goldsmith.

For this piece, the commissioner already owned the interestingly shaped piece of New Zealand Jet, and he knew exactly how he wanted it to be set.

The finished piece pleasingly displays the low sheen of the softly curved Jet in contrast with, and complementing, the high gloss of the copper handcrafted bezel setting. The pendant is strung on a black silk cord, with handcrafted copper fittings.
