This piece was created by my partner Jeff. He carved the lapis bead by hand, then created end caps of gold. Next he made the gold chain, each link hand formed and soldered. He soldered the bead caps into the chain while the bead was under water, so that there would be no weak link. The ornaments he made from repurposed antique walrus ivory, adding inlaid gold, small padukas, and a ruby and diamond.
