This is the INCREDIBLE “Spirit Breath” talisman collaboration between Yoshinori Kondo and Jason Burruss featuring a gorgeous multi-layer borosilicate cab by Yoshi, and a stunning wire wrap by Jason that has a 17.5 ct. teardrop cut Rose Amethyst, 2 x round cut Amethysts, and 2 x Tanzanites in .925 Argentium Silver. I don't actually wear pendants myself, so when I get a pendant and actually struggle to let it go, that's a sign it's a VERY special piece, and this one is at the top of that scale! The whole piece, the design, the construction is simply brilliant, and bright. I love the colors, and those amethyst gems are just SO nice. Jason chose an absolutely perfect design to match the cab, which is no surprise, since he is one of the best in the world at this and has had lots of experience now with Japanese cabs. Yoshi's cab itself is the highlight of course - it's not a typical cab in that it is essentially a half marble, so that bubble shape gave Yoshi lots of glass real estate to work with in the dot stacking. And oooooh what dot stacking it is! It's a fantastic double layer design that is both complex and beautiful, and truly intense in its appeal. Whether you get this to wear it or display it, I can guarantee it will be a major conversation piece as others marvel at what these two masters have created!
