Bright Fortitude

in: Necklace



When I look at this pendant from Istanbul, I think strength.  Flowers endure much: poor soil, not enough or too much rain, dizzying temps, and yet they flourish and bring beauty.  This antiqued silver pendant is a reflection of that.  It's suspended from a silver plated circlet, and the necklace is composed of large, round jasper stones in varying shades of pale blue and aqua, pale gray, mocha, and dark blue.  It's been hand knotted and also has picasso finish seed beads in mocha, and silver plated beads with a bamboo embossed design.  Simple. powerful, beautiful.  It's long - the necklace is nearly 30" including the silver plated toggle and connector, and the pendant is 2 1/2" long and an inch wide.  This could easily be the go-to necklace for everyday wear with jeans and just as versatile to add some drama to a dress.  As always, one-of-a-kind.
