Blue topaz form fold silver pendant

A recent commission, this pendant is a new style of work for me called fold forming.  The stone is a beautiful Swiss blue topaz with a four claw setting to hold the stone in the fold. The beauty of the faceted, transparent topaz  is enhanced by the silver reflecting light to and from the stone.  The bulk of the metal is fine silver, but because of the chain, it is hallmarked as sterling.

I shall be doing more work using this technique which will end up in my shop in due course.
