Ceramic oval by Lisa Peters Russ, pyratized ammonite cut by Gary Wilson; both set in sterling silver
Just like one might mix color or texture one can mix component mediums to create a special piece of jewelry. I find it fun looking for those components that magically go together from my stash. It's like they've been patiently waiting to find their mate.
One of my favorite ceramic artists is Lisa Peters Russ. Her focals have colors and texture I adore. They tell stories in and of themselves. In addition to the pendant above I've created the following using one of her focals as a key piece in my design.
