TORTUGA NECKLACE

TORTUGA

This 2-way* necklace is made to honor the turtle which in many cultures is said to carry the Earth on its back to protect it. Consequently the turtle carving from China has a shell of malachite-azurite which actually looks like the Earth. The necklace is strung with molded jet heishi and includes malachite-azurite and hematite beads.**


RAVEN'S WORLDS NECKLACE

RAVEN'S WORLDS

The Raven is a messenger between this world and the spirit world. This 2-way* necklace, strung with molded jet heishi, features a black onyx raven fetish and malachite/azurite and hematite bead worlds.**


EARTH MOTHER NECKLACE

EARTH MOTHER

Strung with jasper tubes, turquoise beads and heishi, this 2-way* necklace features a red jasper Earth Mother carving reminiscent of the Venus of Willendorf, a fertility carving from Stone Age Europe.**

BABAD DO'AG

Also strung with red jasper tubes, turquoise beads and heishi, this 2-way* necklace features a red jasper frog.  The Tohono O'odham peoples of the Tucson valley in SE Arizona call the main peaks of the Santa Catalina Mountains 'Babad Do'ag or Frog Mountain.
 

ANASAZI NIGHTS

This 3-strand (24") necklace features my 'Anasazi' color combination , using red jasper, turquoise, and picture jasper stone chips.** It is strung with violet oyster heishi and has silver-plated findings. The Anasazi colors are also featured on necklaces using voluta heishi, 'Anasazi Sands', and with sterling liquid silver, 'Anasazi Silver'. I use this Native American style necklace to feature other stones such as lapis and malachite, strung with both sterling liquid silver and violet oyster heishi.

ANASAZI SANDS

Voluta shell heishi

ANASAZI SILVER

Sterling liquid silver


* All the single strand necklaces can be worn long, 24", or as a choker, the extender becoming an anklet or bracelet.

**The tag on each necklace explains its inspiration and identifies the stones.


ALL NECKLACES COME IN A COMPLIMENTARY G1FT BOX with information about the stones I use, the Science and the lore.

EARRINGS to match all necklaces are available. They are made with French hooks unless requested otherwise.
