This is my newest creation. It is a two-sided pendant. The body is made of 4 sterling silver sheets and the rivets and spacers are made of 14K gold. The center stone is an Amethyst cut by David Brackna. David calls this his Turkish star cut. He is the only one in the world executing this cut, as it is his brainchild. The accenting stones on the front and back are Afghani Tourmalines, which have been provided by Out of our Mines company in Arcata, CA. The geometry shown here is a departure from metatron's cube, showing the relationship of the circle triangle and the square. The accent stones and rivets have been place at the intersecting power points of this geometry.
Here you see a reverse shot of the pendant. The geometry engraved on the back is much the same as the front but shows more of the lines I used to create the design. This is a sort of map to the piece. Notice that the triangular cutout on the bale is opposed to the cutout on the front creating a suggested 6-pointed star when looked through. This may be new to some of you, but the upward pointing triangle is the male orientation and downwards is the female orientation. Both are included to bring balance. This is the backside, but the pendant is meant to be reversible.
Side view of the pendant. You can see that the top layer is actually two layers which have been soldered together.

This is a hand forged bale, not just a chopped piece of tubing stock; meaning that it started from a piece of flat silver sheet. The bale has been soldered to layer two and is situated so it does not interfere with the piece laying flat on the chest whether worn forward or backward.

This last shot shows the scale of this piece next to an all familiar house key. Pendant is just under 1 3/4 inches in diameter excluding the bale. 2 and 1/4 ounces is the weight of this pendant. Just under 70 hours went into this creation and about $1000 in materials. My price is $6000 flat delivered to your door via insured UPS. Please email at AndyLucasJewelry@gmail.com
