Lava Stone Cameo Frame
Regular price $0.00
Our customer brought in a cameo carved from lava stone. It is beautiful and the carving is very detailed. This cameo is delicate because it is soft and chips easily. When the goldsmiths saw this they didn't want anything to do with setting it. Too much risk. We designed this setting because I thought it would offer the best chance of success. The mounting is made of sterling silver with a 14K yellow gold twisted wire accent. The bezel we made is set from the back with 4 prongs that hold the stone and attach the backplate to complete the piece of jewelry. Fingers were crossed as I pushed the prongs over to assemble the pieces together. The customer was happy about the successful pendant. Goldsmith Tim Thompson and I collaborated on the design and completion of this piece.
