[meteorite-list] seeking to commission jeweler for small lunar pendant

One of my coworkers is a volunteer for the local Make-A-Wish chapter
and has recently arranged for a sick little girl and her family to get
a behind-the-scenes tour of our workplace (the Adler Planetarium).
Even if we can't literally fulfill her wishes (meeting Katy Perry, and
going to the Moon), it struck me that I could genuinely give a little
bit of the Moon to her.
I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could refer me to a jeweler
who could mount a small lunar meteorite (which I would supply from my
personal collection) in a pendant. I'm not asking for a donation; I'm
absolutely willing to pay a fair commission out of my own pocket. I
figured I'd ask the list since I know some talented jewelers are
members, and I'd prefer to work with someone who has experience
working with small, relatively fragile meteorites.
I'm afraid the timeline is very tight; we're meeting the girl and her
family on March 9. I just found out about the visit a couple days ago.
Thanks very much in advance, and please feel free to contact me off list.
Very best regards,
