The sea holds a facination for me, and the ever changing shades of azures, teals, greens and purples inspired this one of a kind necklace, newly listed on etsy, in my Luxe range.

The semi-precious gems it contains are: chalcedony, prehnite, iolite, smoky quartz, freshwater pearls, amazonite, crystal quartz, labradorite and swarovski crystal, each individually wire wrapped together using sterling silver wire.

All components are sterling silver, with beads ranging from 5mm to 10mm. Total length is 53cm / 21in, with links to wear it at three lengths; 46cm / 18in, 48cm / 19in and 52cm / 20in.

It’s inspired my latest etsy treasury too, also called ‘of the sea’ and full of the treasures of the sea I found today when diving into etsy.

My fantastic featured artists are: seaurchin, zuppaartista, KiraFerrer, JenniferGentle, dsbrennan, beakee, ThePeachTree, akkricket, ara133photography, danbobthompson, staroftheeast, ReArt.

    seriously rate the new necklace: brave, beautiful and really captures the random greatness of a beach/seabed trawl…. the light, the water, the minerals…I know its sounds pretentious, but its true, right?
