Dragonfly Bamboo Necklace, Brass Turquoise Magnesite Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with peaceful spring and summer happiness, the HALCYON handmade necklace is a thoughtful jewelry gift for the woman who loves a one of a kind, artisan design.  The beautiful necklace features a brass dragonfly and bamboo pendant, turquoise magnesite cubes and copper beads.  The gorgeous pendant has a raised dragonfly and sweeping bamboo design against a textured background.  As you can see in the photos, the detailing is brilliant.  And to add even more eye-appeal and to add a rustic vibe, the pendant was given a white patina for the background with a turquoise blue patina to bring out the dragonfly and the bamboo. Please be aware that the white patina shows up more in the photos - in real life, it is much more mellow with the brass.  The back of the dragonfly and bamboo pendant is naturally patinated brass.  A single copper jump ring connected the unique pendant to the main body of the necklace.
To perfectly complement the turquoise blue patina of the pendant, turquoise magnesite and copper were used.  The turquoise magnesite was permanently dyed a gorgeous turquoise blue color with natural brown veining in most of the pieces.  Adding even more texture to the necklace design, the magnesite is cube-shaped, a shape you don’t see very often.  Three magnesite cubes were used to make each grouping with copper beads separating each cube for fluidity in the necklace drape.  A larger 7 mm copper bead separates each group.  A patterned toggle clasp set securely finishes the necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the HALCYON necklace is a perfect gift for the woman who adores dragonflies and loves to wear one of a kind jewelry with peaceful vibes.

Dragonflies are said to carry the wisdom of transformation and adaptability in life; they are often viewed as messengers between the gods and humans. Brass helps develop strength of spirit. Bamboo has long been a symbol for strength, due to its fast growth and resilience. Turquoise Magnesite is said to help turn dreams into realities; it is believed to instill peace during meditation. Copper is used to help the wearer recognize barriers in the path of personal development.

The HALCYON artisan 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!
