  Item #322                      SOLD
These beautiful pine cones are carved from extremely hard material. The charcoal one on the left is granite, the one on the right is petrified wood. There is writing on the back of the petrified wood cone which says (as best I can tell) "pararavcaga cone." I was unable to find this pine in the limited research I conducted, perhaps you know the tree? Please click on the image to see the details of the carvings.

As usual, I set myself a difficult problem of how to make these lovely carvings wearable. The sterling backing holds them without covering up the stones. A gourd-stitched piece makes a visually (and mechanically) strong attachment to the etched agate in the center. Different strands of complimentary stones and seed beading complete the composition. Subtle yet rich colors are perfect for fall.

A matching bracelet is available.

One-of-a-kind, subject to prior sale
