Copper Ammonite Necklace Spiral Unakite Peridot Coral Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with amazing earthy elegance, the WHISPERS OF TIME handmade necklace is a perfect gift for the woman who loves to wear unique artisan jewelry.  The one of a kind necklace features an artisan created copper ammonite spiral pendant, unakite barrels, green peridot nuggets and pale pink coral drums. The gorgeous ammonite pendant was handcrafted from beginning to end from precious copper metal clay:  it was shaped, carved, inscribed and fired in a kiln. The solid copper pendant was then patinated and polished to bring out the incredible detail. An actual ammonite, from 240 - 65 million years old, was used to make the mold for the pendant!   As you can see in the photos, the ammonite gracefully spirals. The shell is ridged to provide wonderful texture and glow. The back of the pendant is recessed, as you can see in photo # 9. A ridged bail at the top of the pendant attaches it to the main body of the necklace.
Three types of gemstones perfectly complement the pendant:  unakite, peridot and coral. The colors of the barrel-shaped unakite are very earthy:  mostly shades of mottled green with dark terracotta accents, although a few beads are mostly terracotta with a few sprinkles of green.  A small copper bead separates each unakite barrel to provide a sinuous drape to the necklace. To lighten the color of the design, pale pink coral drums are scattered throughout the necklace, capped copper spacers and green peridot nuggets.  The coral is faceted so provides subtle sparkle to the necklace. The green peridot are nugget-shaped so they are similar in size but not exactly. The peridot is also faceted for more glitter. A textured copper toggle clasp finishes the necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog designs, the unique WHISPERS OF TIME necklace is a perfect gift for the woman who loves fossils or just adores wearing one of a kind artisan designer jewelry.

Ammonites are associated with change, resiliency and overcoming obstacles.   Spirals, through the eons, have been associated with the cycles of time; the seasons; the cycle of birth, growth, death, and then rebirth. Unakite is said to be a stone of  love, compassion and kindness. Pink Coral is associated with love, family and community. Peridot is believed to increase patience and confidence. Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  


The WHISPERS OF TIME artisan ammonite 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. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
