Bridging geometry, dimension, and mixed metals this star sapphire sterling silver and gold brooch will spark conversation and create connection.  Triangles represent the connection and balance of mind, body and spirit and the square represents solidity and groundedness. In the center is a vintage-cut blue star sapphire.

Star sapphire is rare variety of sapphire that exhibits a rare asterism when viewed in the light. When viewing star sapphire, a six-pointed star will appear to float across the surface of the stone.

How its made:

The one-of-a-kind metal texture is created by a metalsmithing process called fusing. Each piece of sterling silver is hand-cut and carefully placed with tweezers onto a sterling silver base.  Then with a little magic, a little luck, intense concentration and careful torch control, the piece is heated just before it completely melts. It's at this point that the pieces fuse to the base. This creates a unique look but also provides superior durability and texture to the piece. Next, 22K gold was cut and soldered into place. The final steps involved traditional metalsmithing techniques of doming, more soldering, adding a patina, and setting the stone.
