This custom necklace was real fun to create. A friend of mine, and a wonderful painter, Kate, already had a larimar stone, which is a gorgeous blue hue. She wanted a necklace made incorporating the stone.
Because the stone itself is so impressive, we wanted the setting to be relatively simple.
But we did want some interest around it. I decided on a simple prong setting, and manipulated some fine silver to anchor the stone on one side. This fits nicely on top of the pendant. A nice cable chain was added, which will give many length options. A small amazonite dangles at the end of the chain.
I love how the necklace turned out, but most importantly, Kate loves it, feels good and looks great in it.
Designing a new piece is fun, but what gives me most satisfaction, is when it is enjoyed. Jewelry should be worn, and loved, and bring joy.
