I bought this stone because it reminded me of water lilies. (That I'm a sucker for the Impressionists should come as no shock...)
Does anyone know what it is? The flower is carved mother of pearl held on with a peridot, and I wrapped it in bronze coated copper and 14/20 gold fill.
I wasn't sure what colors would work best to keep an organic feel, and bronze felt a little too dull on its own, so I hedged my bets
And had some fun with the vines. First time trying vine kind of things with square, still not sure on it. I feel like I could get an art nouveau feel if I could get a handle on it.
It seems like a spring piece, so I figure I'll put it on etsy once I figure out what the base stone is.
It is about 2 1/2" long by just under 1 1/2" wide.
