KG Necklace dino bone SS
fossilized dinosaur bone, sterling silver. Cable is about 18".
Fossilized dinosaur bone is one of my favorite minerals. It fascinates me to look at the texture of the bone as it's been preserved in the formation of the agate and see the colors and "cells" that develop along the way. I had these "tablet" shapes cut by a lapidary artist in Colorado and set them into sterling frameworks inspired by Japanese gates. The contrast in texture and simple framing accentuated the lovely color and texture in the fossil.
