"Splendid" Necklace in 23-Karat Gold on Tektite, Coral, Czech Glass

Hand-gilded tektite stone with 23-Karat gold leaf, coral, glass, and 14-karat gold-filled toggle clasp along with my signature tag.

The word tektite comes from the greek word "tektos" which means molten. Whether the meteorite explodes in the air or upon impact, what we call tektite stone is thrown out from the explosive force.

I love the texture on the top surface of the tektite stone for laying the gold. The underside is smooth against the skin.
