Tao Bead Pendant – Jewel in the Lotus (amethyst)


Tao Bead Pendant – Jewel in the Lotus (amethyst)

Faceted amethyst nestled in polished fine silver is simply beautiful.

The shadowbox technique is popular in Native American jewelry. I’ve been having fun creating these bead pendants using the shadowbox technique with various stones and metals. The hollow form allows for the chain to pass through the piece without interrupting the flow of the shape.

May be worn as a pendant, or strung as a bead.

Amethyst is the birthstone for February, and it is connected with wisdom, intuition, psychic dreams, and the crown chakra. Purple is associated with royalty and power.

Hand-crafted, hollow form. Signed.
