Up Up and Away with this delightful sterling silver hot air balloon pendant. The basket is a gemstone cabachon set in sterling silver, and comes in your choice of 9 gemstones.

This pendant is made from sterling silver recycled in my studio. I melt my silver scraps in to a ball, then use a hydraulic press and a steel shot plate to form the balloon impression. After trimming excess silver and smoothing the edges, I solder on a hidden bail, oxidize, and set the stone.

The balloon is around 1/2 inches wide and 3/4 inches long. Because each one is hand formed, it may vary slightly from the samples shown in the photos.

Gemstone Colors:
- African Amethyst
- Citrine

- Rhodolite Garnet
- Tourmaline, Green

- Tourmaline, Light Pink

The Rhodolite Garnet and the Dark Pink Tourmaline appear quite similar in color in the picture.
The Rhodolite is slightly more purple-ish.
