Frog Necklace, Aventurine Red Java Glass Lapis Boho Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

What a fun piece of jewelry for the woman who loves frogs and one of a kind, boho design!  The KATAK handmade necklace features a hand carved, aventurine gemstone frog pendant, colorful Indonesian glass beads, blue lapis lazuli and copper.  The Oriental-style frog pendant is hand carved on both sides from yellow aventurine.  The color is a mellow yellow with darker yellowish-orange stripes near the top.  Both sides of the hand carved frog pendant are very similar.  A carved round hole is found at the belly of the frog - the hole is based on Chinese emperor coins which were considered very lucky to carry.  Two heavy duty copper jump rings connect the aventurine frog to the main body of the necklace.
To perfectly complement the carved gemstone frog pendant and provide a boho flair, Indonesian glass beads are used.  The glass beads were individually handmade by artisans on the island of Java.  The beads are red with orangey-yellow stripes and light blue and darker blue flowers.  Since they are handmade, the Java beads are similar but not exactly the same.  To highlight the blue flowers, round lapis lazuli gemstones are found scattered in the necklace.  Pure copper bicones separate each bead and add a lovely glow.  A pure copper toggle clasp securely finishes the unique necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the KATAK frog pendant necklace is a perfect gift for the woman who loves fun, one of a kind frog jewelry with a boho look.  “Katak” is the Indonesian word for “frog.”

Frogs are a symbol of transition and transformation; they are also a symbol of good luck.  Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Yellow Aventurine represents self-reflection, calmness, balance, and creativity.  Lapis Lazuli is considered to be the stone of truth and friendship and is used for invoking wisdom.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.

The one of a kind KATAK 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!
