№ 309 Moss Aquamarine
This show stopper necklace features an asymmetric design with large faceted pieces of moss aquamarine, smaller accent stones, antique coin silver beads from India, and a chunky sterling silver chain. This necklace will easily slip over your head and rest within the bust line.
Moss aquamarine's ocean hues range from greens to deep blues. Moss aquamarine is believed to have an affinity with sensitive people, carrying the power of the ocean, it is considered a stone of courage, communication, and heightened clairvoyance.
Coin silver is made from a mixture of metals with a high pure silver content, often repurposing coins by melting them down. The coin silver components I work with are antiques from all of the world, ranging from 80-120 years old, found in India, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, and many West African countries such as Nigeria and Mali. The wear and patina of antique coin silver has informed much of my jewelry aesthetic over the years. The pieces are very special and rare.
Necklace is 32" long with no clasp. All chain and findings are oxidized sterling silver.
