This was a meditation in organic creativity for me and had been a work in progress on my bench for many months. A large polished natural rose quartz briolette is suspended from a recycled vintage clip-on earring, reminding me of a hot-air balloon ride on a sunny summer day. Briolettes of carnelian, hot pink chalcedony, and basket-carved smoky quartz are primitively wrapped in antiqued bronze below, and reflect the colors of the recycled Sari silk ribbon above. The ribbon is adorned with African recycled glass beads and copper Ethiopian prayer beads. The ends are secured with metallic gold embroidery thread and finished with a large round lobster clasp and two inch extension.
Centerpiece is about 1″ wide by 3-3/4″ long.
Total length of necklace is about 21-1/2″ with a 2″ extension.
Rose Quartz – Believed to bring love. Represents kindness, caring and forgiveness. Promotes peace and nurturing. A stone of romance, rose quartz is said to promote love and improve one’s self confidence.
