This lovely, wire wrapped, free form lapis and chrysocolla necklace is a creation by a lady named Bev, an artisan friend who had a passion for precious and semi precious gems of the earth. She would sit for hours on end creating a special setting for each stone. She has since passed, but her creations will go on. This piece features sterling silver wire, wrapped to frame the stone to display as much of it's beauty as possible. The setting is secure and shows the beautiful characteristics of the deep blue lapis as found naturally, blended with green chrysacolla. The beaded chain is 18" long with a 1" safety extension. All silver is treated against tarnish. Beads are slightly laser beveled so the sparkle. Condition is excellent, worn very little. Lapis lazuli is considered a stone of truth and friendship. The blue stone is reputed to promote harmony in relationships and carries other metaphysical properties.
I have a pamphlet that she gave with her pieces on the care and cleaning of silver jewelry which I will send along with this piece. It contains a great recipe for getting oxidation or tarnish off sterling silver objects and silverware
