Description:

The artisan, Antonio Escorcia, is a genius with a delicate touch when it comes to creating beautiful raised wire designs in fine sterling silver.  This chain and pendant combination is unique and organic and wonderful.  Pietersite resembles a wild desert storm due to its whirling jumble of colors and textures.


Features: 
At a little over one inch in length the pietersite teardrop pendant has an earthy appeal.   This measures 15 x 13mm.  

The 18 x 20mm raised wire medallion is high polished on the back and Antonio Escorcia signed it and marked the silver " Mex 925". 

The pendant hangs on a handwoven and finished near 18 inch 2.5mm foxtail chain with a lobster catch.  The chain is oxidized and enhances the raised wire medallion. 

About pietersite:

 Pietersite is the trade name for a (usually) dark blue-gray breccia aggregate made up mainly of hawk's eye and tiger's eye. It was discovered in Namibia by a man named Sid Pieters in 1962. Pietersite is almost always cut into cabochons. This is because, to maximize pietersite's chatoyancy, a tall, round cut is required. It is crucial that the cut must be precisely parallel to the length of the pietersite's fibers. The pietersite in this necklace has amazing chatoyancy which means the colors undulate as the gem moves.

About the artist:

Antonio Escorcia: From the small village of Hueymatla near Taxco, Antonio has become one of the area's most talented silversmiths.

His family was also responsible for teaching him the techniques of working silver when Tono was just a young man.

He has spent his life creating jewelry and studied briefly at an independent school of silversmithing in Taxco where he began to experiment with complex, Baroque inspired designs.

His pieces are truly one of a kind, beautifully imagined and technically flawless heirloom pieces.
