Commemorate your favorite sunny dream vacation with the Illuminata Necklace. Inspired by the sun, this handcrafted, oxidized silver and 22K gold necklace features a rose-cut London Blue Topaz.
To create my one-of-a-kind silver textures, I use a 20-step process which involves using heat from my torch (no solder) to fuse the hand-cut silver pieces to its base. I then painstakingly soldered each strip of 22K gold and a tube setting for the stone. Once I domed the two pieces, I soldered them together, which was very tricky! After applying a patina and hand polish, I drilled a hole in the back of the setting to allow light to shine through, giving the topaz optimal sparkle. The stone was securely set with incredible care.
