Double Turquoise Shadowbox Pendant

Double Turquoise Shadowbox Pendant

Take a walk on a dry riverbed, and look for stones that are scooped by water. Or, look at an eddie, the water swirling against a rock in a river, it carves into the stone. Almost imperceptible yet powerful change . . .

This piece reminds me of water droplets sitting in a bowl-shaped stone, the kind of stone shaped over years and years of water droplets against its service.

Like all of my shadowbox pieces, this piece is entirely hand-fabricated and is one of its kind.

2 inches long, 1/2 inch wide at widest point, 1/4 inch deep. The turquoise in this pendant is from the southwest region of the United States.

Mother and Child – Interlocking Amethyst and Turquoise Necklace

Mother and Child – Interlocking Amethyst and Turquoise Necklace

Since Neptune’s Daughter I’ve been thinking of the mother and child theme (or in Neptune’s case, father and daughter. I suppose more accurately, I’ve been thinking of the symbolism of parent/protector/nuturer and child). In any case, mother and child is a classic theme in art.

This necklace is made of two hollow forms that interlock. The larger piece (mother), is a organic turquoise and silver and the smaller piece (child) that nestles into it is a faceted amethyst and silver. The pieces may be worn together or the amethyst bead may be worn on its own.

Turquoise is said to open the throat chakra and helps the wearer open to self-expression and communication. The throat chakra is connected with divine will. Amethyst is connected to the crown chakra and opens the wearer to the divine self. It is also supposed to stimulate prophetic dreams. Turquoise and amethyst is a powerful combination!

Turquoise and Silver Shadowbox Earrings

Turquoise and Silver Shadowbox Dangling Earrings

I really enjoy making shadowbox pieces. Ever since I made shadowbox cufflinks I have been loving the technique! This is my own take on a classic Native American style.

These earrings are gorgeous and dramatic. Though similar, each earring is unique, as the stones are different and the form is hand-fabricated.

These are about 1 and 3/4 inches long, 1/4 inch deep, and about 3/8 of an inch deep at the base.
