New Mexican Bessamim
The name of this piece is an homage to one of my home state's best known phenomena - the flying saucer. The small piece, approximately 1.5 x 2", has the hebrew "bessamim" pierced into the top. The cap is made with a small piece of cerrillos turquoise, the only turquoise still mined in New Mexico (p.s. about 9 miles from my home).
