This is a unique piece of Palm Wood that shows lovely rose, red stone and comes from Louisiana. The cabochon is cut in a large teardrop shape and is bezel set in fine silver and the entire piece of jewelry has been oxidized to showcase all the details. The pendant measures approx 2" x 1.5" long. The pendant hangs from an 27” long sterling silver chain.
What's Petrified Palm Wood? Petrified palm wood is the state stone of Texas and the state fossil of Louisiana. The characteristic spotted look of palmwood is from the rod like structures within the grain of the wood. Depending upon the angle the stone is cut it can show up as spots, tapering rods, or lines.
What are lab created stones? The only difference between a lab created gemstone and a natural gemstone is that the natural gemstone most likely has flaws called inclusions, and lab created gemstones have no inclusions, as the mineral composition, heat, and pressure are controlled in the laboratory. Whether a gemstone is a natural stone or lab-created, the physical characteristics are the same.

Metal clay is a crafting medium consisting of very small particles of metal such as silver, gold, bronze, or copper mixed with an organic binder and water for use in making jewelry, beads and small sculptures. Originating in Japan in 1990, metal clay can be shaped just like any soft clay, by hand or using molds. After drying, the clay can be fired in a variety of ways such as in a kiln, with a handheld gas torch, or on a gas stove, depending on the type of clay and the metal in it. The binder burns away, leaving the pure sintered metal.
