Twinkling Tsavorite Compass Necklace
Working compass necklace with a tsavorite garnet of incredible colour and twinkle. Yes, the name of the stone really is spelled that way, starting with a “t”! I love this stone and it was a gemstone I used in one of the first compasses I ever made for myself, but that’s another story.
I had fun making this unique compass pendant with its various layers, combining textures and swirls and including touches of gold. The Tsavorite is set in gold, too. There’s more to each of us than meets the eye and this is part of what inspired this design – the idea that not everything about us is instantly visible, that the more time you spend with someone, the better you get to know them. Here’s a picture of the finished piece emerging from the workshop, still in need of final polish.
A Silver Compass that Really Works
Appearing to some as a necklace, not everyone will know that there’s a compass set into the back of the pendant. Not only that, it’s a Francis Barker Compass which means it’s a reliable working compass that you can trust. On top of that, I’ve gone the distance to make sure it’s waterproof too, and you can read about my waterproof compasses at your leisure.
