Crystal, Gemstone, Glass, Pearl & shell
Necklace length: 13 Inches; Pendant height: 2 Inches; Pendant width: 3/4 Inches
Crystals from Turtleback Mountain, the mountain in whose shadow I live.
The 5 crystals in this piece were found by me on Turtleback mountain. With the help of my awesome new diamond-drill tool I drilled holes in them especially to create this piece. The other beads on this piece are African cast glass from the late 1800s and at the back an antique African Cowrie shell. Cowrie shells are an ancient symbol of abundance, fertility and wealth.
This necklace is 27 inches around, the centerpiece crystal is 2 inches tall.
