When I was a girl, my mother had a beautiful garnet necklace that she kept in a tiny wooden box on top of her dresser. Occasinally when she was preoccupied with running our household and tending to my siblings, I'd sneak into her room bedroom and pull that little box to the front of the dresser. Silently and ever-so-slowly I'd open it. Every time felt like magic, like butterflies, like being told a secret that made the world make sense. And I'd run my fingers across each gemstone, turn them in the light to watch it dance, and feel the weight of the stones in my hands. I'd hold the chain up against my chest and imagine what I would look like wearing it, with her favorite dress and red high heels. I have carried that thirst for elegance with me, and occasionally I create pieces that make me reminisce beautiful times in my life. This stunning necklace is a product of childhood memories and cherished dreams. It is crafted using the most delicious gemstones- a pineapple quartz drop, powder pink freshwater pearl, peach adventurine and glass beads. Measurements: 24 inch chain with additional 5 inch drop. Salvaged and vintage components.
