Here is another absolutely stunning gem from Jason Burruss' 'Tokyo Collection', the Koji Ryu aka Ice Dragon Talisman! Jason wrapped this gorgeous Yoshi cab in .935 Argentium silver and 14 kt. yellow gold-filled wire, along with a massive 26.6 ct. of beautiful Vietnamese Aquamarines. It's almost too much for my eyes to handle, a glorious dagger to my heart. Jason is a genius at finding the perfect gems to match the glass cabs in each piece he creates, and this one is next-level special, because those aquamarines set off Yoshi's can so incredibly well. It's an amazing work of art, something that belongs in a museum, and yet you can hang this museum piece around your neck for all the world to see! The cab itself is 1.74" in size.
The piece comes tucked in its own little micro pelican case for ultimate safe keeping. As stated above, this piece is part of Jason's 'Tokyo Collection' which he created as a result of his December 2015 trip to Japan. He is in the process of creating a book which will feature this pendant and all of the others that came about as a result of his creative collaboration with Yoshinori and several other top Japanese artists. A copy of that book will come with this pendant, and if I don't have a copy of the book yet when this pieces sells, then I will mail one to you as soon as I receive them from Jason.
