Realization of the silver cross

The beginning of our work begins with the sketch of the jewel that our client has given us.

This is an annotated image detailing the design, dimensions and shapes of the pendant.

Drawing of the pendant to be made

This drawing served as a model for carving in wax, a replica identical to the image of the pendant.

This sculpture is then used to make the replica in sterling silver.

To do this, a mold is made with the wax, a mold in which the molten silver is then poured.

The silver molded piece is then cleaned and polished, then the bail is made which will be welded to the pendant as well as around the turquoise stone.

At this point, we now need to cut the turquoise stone to fit the dimensions required for our pendant.

Cutting of natural turquoise stone

For the realization of this project, we chose a real turquoise stone from Afghanistan.

Presenting a beautiful color and few veins, it corresponded to the choice of our client.

In the end, we obtain a turquoise size with rough edges that will be shaped by polishing to fit perfectly into the setting provided for it on the pendant.
