The Tourmaline Turret
Without further adieu. . . . . . . . The Very FIRST RAMSTAR CREATION OF 2013!!! What is truly incredible about this piece is the amount of unintentional awesomeness that has revealed itself only after creation. The main stone in this pendant is tourmaline and you can tell by the pictures that it has incredible color and transparency. The round green stone that appears to have spokes is a Trapiche Emerald and the way that it is set allows for light to easily pass through and illuminate it. The 3 square stones descending downward are Tsavorite Garnet. Most of the metal in this fabricated work is Sterling Silver and accented with gold. If you noticed gun barrels on the bottom, than you are quite astute. Diamonds, both black and white, in the ends of the barrels let it be known this is the final word in space gun turret inspired art. One observer remarked a similarity to Anubis, the Egyptian God referencing the silver bead work that descends down the left side. Ramstar also incorporated the 3 great pyramids into his signature on the back. It is this detail that made all the difference in the world. Upon looking at his newly crafted pendant, Ramstar noticed the reflection of his signature IN the crystal!! The last picture on the second page is trying desperately to convey the effect. Holographic pyramids?? The piece is eloquently engraved adding yet another layer to this masterpiece.
