Embrace Your Crazy Necklace Ceramic Pendant Red Coral Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The EMBRACE YOUR CRAZY handmade necklace is mega fun and colorful at the same time.  Perfect jewelry for the woman who has a streak of crazy in her (don’t we all?), the one of a kind necklace features an artisan heart pendant with “embrace your crazy” impressed into it.  To highlight the glorious colors of the pendant, red coral rondelles and turquoise Czech glass were used. The unique hand formed, hand painted ceramic heart pendant has a slightly distressed, antique style.  The background is an aqua turquoise  color with bright flower petals in red, yellow, fuchsia, blue, orange and green. The letters of “embrace your crazy” are brown so they stand out beautifully against the aqua turquoise glaze.  The backside, which was left unglazed, has a flower in a circle engraved in it with rays or flower petals emanating from the circle. The pendant was kiln fired at extremely high heat to add strength and durability. Since the back of the pendant was left unglazed and is porous, it can be used as an essential oil diffuser - just add a couple of drops to the back and the aroma will hold for several days.  Two heavy gauge sterling silver jump rings connect the pendant to the main body of the necklace. 
To perfectly highlight the heart pendant and to add a Southwest flair, red coral discs and two shapes and sizes of turquoise Czech glass beads were used.  The hand cut coral, which was dyed, is a deep, rich red color. The rondelles are in groups of five until the end of the necklace which finishes with a group of seven.  Between each group of coral are rustic Czech glass lantern beads with a silvery turquoise Picasso finish. Small turquoise Czech discs are found on each end of the lantern beads.  Small sterling silver beads separate the Czech glass from the red coral. A floral patterned sterling silver hook clasp, with almost the same design as the flowers on the pendant, securely fastens the necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the EMBRACE YOUR CRAZY necklace is a perfect gift for the woman who adores wearing artisan handmade jewelry.

Imagery and symbols on ceramics have been utilized over the ages to uplift the spirit. Through the centuries, flowers have been a symbol of spiritual awakening; they are symbols of generosity and love when they are given away.  Red Coral is used to help calm life, to restore harmony in the event of an emotional conflict. Even though man made, glass is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


The EMBRACE YOUR CRAZY 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!
