This statement piece is a heart with a unique cutlefish texture, with an arrow clasp embedded with a trillion-cut garnet.The 8 x 8 garnet comes from Mozambique.

I was casting cuttlefish one day and this heart just happened...I played with the design, adding the red garnet and the result was this gorgeous, eye-catching necklace(with 45 cm long anchor chain).

Cuttlebone casting is an ancient technique used in the Mediterranean countries for centuries. Cuttlebone is the chalky internal shell of the squid-like cuttlefish.

I carved my design into the bone, melted the metal and poured the liquid metal in the carving. The fine lines you see in the metal are the unique natural structure of the bone.

The garnet is the birthstone for all people born in January. The ruby belongs to the corundum family of gems. It is the birthstone for all people born in July.
