Silvio’s Workbench – Coins, Ring & Belt Buckle

Several earrings designed with old silver and bronze coins of various origins sit on Silvio’s bench, almost ready to send out. The coins were provided by a client in Santa Fe. “There’s Medieval coins, Roman bronze and the Middle East, I believe,” says Silvio.

Meanwhile, another project takes shape on paper. This is for a local client. The materials will include: Champagne diamond, ruby gemstones and pink tourmalines on a white-gold ring.*

A Facebook visitor asked about the New Mexico obsidian point in sterling and 18k gold that Silvio posted there yesterday. She wanted to know if Silvio had a 20″ necklace similar to the one in the photograph. “The necklace is woven steel and this one is 16″ long,” explained Silvio. “It has an 18-k clasp. It is a really nice, unique necklace, but this is not something I fabricate. Let me know what you have in mind and I’ll see if I can find something like that for you and the length you need.”

Currently, Silvio is wearing the snake vertebrae bracelet (it is so comfortable), the obsidian point and a natural gem turquoise belt buckle. The turquoise is from the Oro Grande mine in New Mexico.
