This piece of Lapis Lazuli made me think of a lazy summer afternoon, with white puffy clouds drifting across a deep blue sky. I designed the setting to give a feeling of flight as well as a hint of Middle Eastern design, which is so appropriate for the royal Lapis stone. The setting is sterling silver, which has been cut and hammered. The bezel around the stone is scalloped. The necklace is handmade Viking Knit chain, with a handmade silver hook clasp and end caps. I added a couple of bright blue Lapis beads to add a bit of elegance to the back.
I felt this piece shows best just at the collar bone, and made the chain fairly short at just under 16". If desired, I can add a 2" extender chain for an additional $10. Please mention this in a note when purchasing.
Wear this necklace, and feel as though you are soaring through sunny summer skies!
