On this piece, I was inspired by Nelson Mandala, and what he stood for in this Country.
It is made out of Gold filled 20 gauge wire that was forged or flattened, and formed in shape of the Country to be at almost the same level of the gemstone; and the trunk and tree branches give the stone a focal point and also lock’s it in place.
The neck piece is suede brown cord, that fastens of medal large hole bead.
A Jewel in The Making
