CUSTOM LARIMAR NECKLACE April 23 2015, 0 Comments

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.
