This is my project for the Season of Jewelry project, Week 2, using the theme of Mother Earth, Father Sky for inspiration. For my personal goals, I used a recently acquired kyanite teardrop bead for the center drop instead of letting it languish in my stash for years. Another personal goal, keeping some of my nicer pieces, I’m toying with keeping this one instead of selling it…or at the least making another similar so I’ll wind up with one. I was especially pleased with how pretty this combination of stones was.
This piece is made from sterling silver. The blue center teardrop of kyanite, the iolite beads in the swirly part and the pearls represent Mother Earth’s oceans, and the moonstone and clear austrian crystal represent Father Sky’s moon and stars.
