Snowshoe Hares for this deep winter of 2023!
Inspired by the Chinese Astrological year of the Water Rabbit. For me, this relates in snowy landscapes and shadow dances, magic and hope in a very long Montana winter.
This piece is a gorgeous cut of Ocean Jasper from my main man Merlin down in Livingston. He didn't understand my draw to this muted Jasper when I picked it, and thought maybe I should pick out something more colorful. But there's something mysterious about the tones of this stone. Something so very...Wintry.
Piece is set in Fine and Sterling Silver, and hangs from pattern chain like an 18" necklace would. Slightly adjustable up and down the chain with lobster-style clasp. Backplate is patterned with a 'snowscape' through my rolling mill with my signature coin on the back. I've added a few 14k Gold Fill discs to the chain alongside Sterling ones for a little dancing shimmer in the piece.
OOAK for February 2023.
