Cuttlefish Cast Pendant
A delicate 9c yellow gold pendant and chain featuring a warm pink spinel. The 0.25 carat stone was cut in central Victoria by Paul Fenselau and originates from Vietnam. This 3 dimensional pendant with textured and polished finish is 9mm long and 6.5mm wide. The very fine oval link chain is 52cm long.
The texture on the pendant was created using the traditional cuttlefish casting technique. This involves molten metal being poured into a mould carved out of cuttlefish. The metal flows into the grooves of the cuttlefish and the resulting texture is unique each time.
