Pedernal Ring #2

3,250.00

When I step outside my studio in Northern New Mexico I see the Pedernal. It's spoken of, and thought of, as a volcano-like mountain (10,000 Ft.), but in reality it's an erosion feature rather like a mesa. It is sacred to many Native Americans, and was deeply significant to Georgia O'Keeffe. I didn't realize until I finished the ring that it had sneaked its way into my work again. The tourmaline is the mountain itself, the layers of colored golds are abstractions of the rose, pink and yellow rocks that are part of its metaphorical soul.

2.35 Ct. Pink Cat's-eye tourmaline (ca. 8x6x5.5mm) set in 18K yellow gold with 14K pale-pink shank, and rose gold detail. Size 6 ½ (sizable ± one size).
