Carnelian and bronze round pendant necklace as gifted at GBK Gift Lounge for The Primetime Emmys
This unique round bronze pendant necklace features a stunning deep red carnelian stone. It was crafted using textured bronze metal clay and beautiful earth tones. This elegant piece of art jewelry was crafted in the style of an ancient treasure. It is classic, with a regal elegance and artistic feel. This necklace was gifted at The GBK Luxury GIft Lounge for The 2013 Primetime Emmys nominees and presenters, via The Artisan Group.
The pendant was sculpted using Goldie Bronze metal clay. This unique artisan clay consists of tiny bronze particles suspended in organic binder material. When fired in a kiln at 1510 degrees, the binder burns away, leaving behind a durable sintered bronze metal in a lovely shade of gold. After firing, the piece was hand finished and burnished to highlight the raised areas. It was treated to prevent tarnishing.
The 8mm carnelian cabochon was set by hand in a crown type bezel. The back has a satin, matte finish. Each necklace will vary slightly, as each is handmade. The same excellent craftsmanship and design is used to create each piece.
The pendant is 1 1/4" in diamter. It is suspended from a delicate gold plated vintage inspired chain. The necklace is 17" long and is finished with a lobster clasp and three inch chain extender.
Carnelian has been called "The Artist's Stone" because of its association with creativity, confidence and increased energy. It has been associated with protection from negative emotions. This beautiful earthy stone looks gorgeous with gold bronze and adds a royal touch to this unique piece of art jewelry.
