Sterling silver crescent cast from cuttlebone, with a dichroic glass cabochon set in a fine silver bezel and framed with gold-filled wire-woven sterling silver wires. Two sterling silver tabs were soldered onto the back of the crescent to link the crescent, bezel, and wire frame together. One end of the frame wires are riveted through the ends of the crescent, the free ends of the wires being curled around over the top of the rivets. 5mm split rings are threaded onto the wires at each end as anchor points for a necklace chain or cord.
