Moon Rock Necklace!
Here's a piece I made back in 2016, but the recent lunar eclipse had me thinking about how cool this was!
A man brought me an actual moon rock (!!!) and wanted to make a custom necklace for his wife. This guy LOVES meteors and can tell you more interesting things than I can about them. He even goes out and hunts for them!
We decided the moon rock needed to be set into it's own little silver moon, so I suggested a fun technique where I splash molten silver to create a crater like form!
It's really, really fun to splash down some liquid silver :)
He had the identification numbers for this rock, so we engraved them on one side of the necklace.
One of the things I really love about this piece is that he took something he was very passionate about and had a beautiful piece made for his wife!
If you have an idea you want to create, or if you need help coming up with a super meaningful piece, you don't have to worry! I am here to help!
