Freeform carved pendant in redskin turquoise of Chinese origin.
Undulating ripples wrap around and cover the entire surface. Making for details whatever angle you look at it. From 2 ounces rough nugget, to 1 once carved and wearable with a glossy all around polish.
Had a general idea of how I wanted it to look when I started. Really let the stone dictate where and how to remove material.
