"L'EXCEPTIONELLE PREHNITE SUR EPIDOTE"

L'EXCEPTIONELLE PREHNITE SUR EPIDOTE

pendant

Prehnite on Epidote from Mali set in green vermeil and black rhodium silver, 2013.   (80 x 30 x 15 mm)

Client testimonial:  “ The brief for this commission was a pendant based on a mineral rather than a gemstone. Ornella showed me various mineral specimens but I was intrigued by the phrenite and the way the yellow/green bubbles come out of the grey charcoal like substrate. The challenge for Ornella as a designer was to come up with a setting that was consistent with the extraordinary contrast of colour and texture of the specimen and I think she succeeded admirably. The finished piece keeps the slightly bonkers look of the mineral and is a great wearable artwork.”
