TREE NECKLACE




This is my translation of a tree. I soooo enjoyed working on this, the idea came from my recent thoughts of family and friends, and the need for strength, and my continual search for it, and the tree is just that to me.
The earthiness of the stones and their colors, that range from green, brown.....reds and yellows in autumn, the big blue lapiz for the reaching to the sky, the strength of the sterling bars as the branches, and the circles as the interconnecting with life and others. These are some of my Sunday thoughts.......

This looks very down to earth - love it! Remember your tree must be not only strong, but flexible and bend in the wind, so it does not break! Hugs!!

OMG Sharon, this necklace is fabulous, love the symbolism of all the parts of it and its beautiful colors. The biggest pearl reminds me of a turquoise, more than a lapis. It si a stunning piece.

really yummy, sharon! I love the colours of the stones combined with the hammered metal. You do an excellent job photographing your pieces as well! : ) lenna

Thank you again everyone, you are my inspiration...all of you!
BTW, the big focal is a turquoise, but the large stone opposite the yellow chalcedony is a lapiz, which is the one I referred to as the sky!
