Bronze Spiral Sun Necklace, Honey Onyx Gemstone Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

 

The SUMMER DAZE handmade pendant necklace is filled with the beauty and wonder of ancient symbolism, perfect jewelry to wear on those hot summer days.  The one of a kind necklace features a glowing artisan created bronze spiral sun pendant, unique honey onyx gemstones and copper.  Crafted from pure glowing bronze, the round pendant has a spiral sun design, the spiral in the center of the sun with rays emanating from it. The design is raised off the background lending the pendant a wonderful tactile texture.  Slightly domed in shape, the pendant has a smooth back.  It is securely connected to the necklace with a heavy duty copper jump ring.  Often found in the Anasazi people’s petroglyphs, a spiral sun is a symbol of healing and the natural rhythms of life, death and rebirth.
 
To perfectly complement the glorious bronze color of the pendant and to add even more summery goodness, natural honey onyx gemstones and copper make up the main body of the necklace.  Honey onyx is a unique stone, prized for centuries due to its exotic look and translucent qualities.  As its name suggests, the gemstones are a lovely pale honey color with a slight greenish tinge. Stripes and swirling clouds of mellow orange and darker brown can be found in some of the rounds, adding great eye appeal.  Most of the gemstones are beautifully translucent, which can be seen when the necklace is held up to the light.  Copper bicones and disc spacers were used to add groupings to the design, between every five honey onyx rounds.  A copper hook clasp set securely fastens the necklace when worn.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog designs, the SUMMER DAZE necklace was created for the woman who loves wearing fun jewelry with an ancient, mystical feel.

The spiral sun is an important Anasazi's petroglyphs symbol for healing ; it also stands for the natural movements and rhythms of life, the constant motion of the universe.  Honey Onyx is said to bring good fortune and helps in recognizing personal strength.   Bronze is said to bring great calmness and deep meaningful thoughts, leading to a far greater insight into life’s problems.  Copper is believed to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  

 

The SUMMER DAZE artisan pendant necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals.
