The original piece in the Geode Collection was the Large pendant. I had this big forged cup that I had made when I created the Forged Cup collection sitting on my bench for 5 years before i started playing with it. Sometimes things come in stages. I had already begun using many gemstones to create color in my work where I had previously used colored epoxy resin. From the 1-dimension of Caviar came the 3-dimension of Geode. I have the stones cut especially for this collection without a hole drilled in the center. This creates a much deeper, richer color. Over 100, 2mm micro-faceted stones are placed by hand in the large Geode Pendant.
