From my "Shield Maiden" Collection, this discretely stunning pendant piece brings together semi-precious stones which are purported to have a magical potency to them. Angel-skin Moonstone, a 24mm x 24mm slice, is the focal piece. It has been hand framed with 22kt gold leaf, and connects to a grouping that includes a tourmaline barrel, a chubby Moonstone rondel and a blue flash Labradorite. They in turn connect to a bronze ring in the center of which I've placed an AAA Moonstone briolette. Another of these briolettes was placed at the tail of the Angel-skin Moonstone focal.
The stone selection is comfortable, easy-going in its colorway, and ethereal in mood. Some of these stones capture tiny tiny beams of moonlight, while others encapsulate broken rutiles of sunshine. And the Labradorite holds the blue light of dusk.
This is a lovely, gentle piece, very neutral and natural in tone. The lower part of the chain is hand wired with 3mm tourmaline chips for a wee bit of unexpected color. It connects via vermeil beads and semi-precious stones to a gold filled chain in a short-long pattern. The entire chain measures 26 inches and the pendant adds another 3 1/2 inches.
