Birch with Aquamarine Square Pendant
Taking inspiration from one of the best-known trees in New England, the white birch, Maggie Moore created this petite pendant with a small aquamarine. The aquamarine measures 4 mm and weighs .21 carats. The aqua was mined at the Russell Brothers Quarry in Topsham, ME from 2007-2010 by Gary Howard. The pendant is actually gold vermeil (a thin coating of gold over silver). Maggie is a Maine-based jewelry designer.
