Shadow box with carnelian

My teacher named this the shadow box project when she was teaching it to me. (click image to enlarge) The gemstone is a carnelian that I put in after the piece was fired. The black between the 2 larger oval shapes is oxidized silver which basically means that I purposely tarnished it to achieve the black color, hence the shadow. This piece comes across a bit more formal and upscale than the other pieces so I wear it when I'm more dressed up.
