A design from an embroidered Renaissance doublet is translated
and etched onto brass, suspended from an etched bail. The companion stones are rough African garnets, sterling silver filigreed tube beads, chocolate smoky quartz and vintage Afghani fittings. African garnets are of the healing pure green ray. In this rough form what appears a plain stone conceals and reveals brilliant luminosity and magical flashes. Smoky quartz is the stone of personal growth, our transitions and changes. Silver is the moon, the goddess, the high priestess of mystery and magic that rules the feminine realms of intuition, emotion and inner discovery. Backed by brown leather, suspended from simple brown cotton cord that will soften to you with wear, a lobster closure and hand wrought links. Like treasures from far off lands.
From end to end the neckpiece measures 22” long, plaque without bail 1 3/8” long X 1” wide, with bail 1 3/4” long.
