Odonto Pendant (Portfolio) - NL1310E1

Odonto means 'tooth' in Greek.

So this is a blue-tooth. Not the kind you need for your cellular phone but a blue tooth none the less.

I love lapis lazuli and especially love it in combination with silver. Most lapis has gold and silver streaks in it and the sterling silver enhances the streaks for a fascinating effect.

This piece was a commission. A friend had found the lapis lazuli tooth on a trip and asked me to mount it and then make a collar style piece for it to hang from.

I love the way it turned out but the story has an unhappy ending in that only a short while after picking it up from me, the stone shattered when it took a fall.

The story is a bit sad and I hope someday to come across another lapis lazuli tooth (or sword) to replace the destroyed one in this setting.
