Desert Thunder Storm

75.00

I’ve never met a desert thunder storm I didn’t like. This Blue Bed, Richardson’s Thunder Egg seems to contain a mini landscape of rolling hills and a stormy red sky with billowing clouds. The land in the scape are fortification lines and botryoidal undulations in varying layers of dark blue Agate and clear. Carved Fine Silver revealing copper lies below resembling flood plane. The sky scene is created from Agate mixing with the Common Opal like the sun going down on a super cell.

This stone is set in Fine Silver on a mixed metal base. The base is comprised of Copper (so the carving will reveal it), Sterling Silver, and Fine Silver worked with heat and hammer until they are combined into sheet metal. This new technique I refer to as ‘Tectonic Plate’ shows on the back of the piece. The Thunder Egg is left ‘backless’ to let the light through. The spheres above the stone are Fine Silver.

This ensemble hangs from your neck by a 3.5mm Greek Leather Cord and Sterling Silver hook and loop clasp. These stones were sourced in Oregon, hand polished, and the setting fabricated from scratch by Karen Britt. Each piece is a one of a kind piece of art, because no two stones are the same and the settings are created by hand, no two pieces are the same (even the earrings). It should be mentioned that all stones are used in their natural state; never dyed or heated to change their appearance. All the metals used are either recycled or fair, humane trade verified and all components used in the jewelry will return to the earth leaving no footprint. Thank you for enjoying the art.
