Frolicking Rabbit Necklace, Peruvian Opal Quartz Handmade Hare Jewelry

Item Description

For many cultures worldwide, rabbits / hares have long been a symbol of good fortune, prosperity and fertility .  The whimsical FROLICKING RABBIT pendant necklace is a wonderful gift for the woman who loves figurative jewelry!  A pewter rabbit pendanrt is the highlight of the one of a kind necklace, along with gorgeous blue Peruvian opals, frosted quartz and sterling silver.  Artisan hand cast in premium lead free pewter, the pendant features a dynamic rabbit on the run.  To add even more symbolism, the hare’s body encompasses two spirals.  Tree branches are found at the top of the pendant along with stylized falling leaves.  The design is raised from the background for wonderful texture.  Lightly oxidized to bring out the details, the pendant was then polished.  *** Please note:  the pendant is much shinier in real life than the photos can ever hope to show.  
Blue Peruvian opals were used to perfectly represent a gorgeous sky.  The national gemstone of Peru, blue opals are fairly rare and are only found in the Andes Mountains. Since they are one of many "common" opals, they lack the color play of the better known fire opals.  Eight graduated in size blue opals are found on each side of the necklace, the longest in front and the smallest at the back.  The groupings are separated by sterling silver beads and glowing frosted clear quartz.  Groups of three frosted quartz rounds finish the back of the necklace.  Securely fastening the necklace is a sleek sterling silver toggle clasp.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the FROLICKING RABBIT necklace was created for the woman who loves unique, one of a lind artisan jewelry with ancient symbolism!

Through the centuries rabbits / hares have been a symbol of good fortune, prosperity and fertility.  Another ancient symbol, spirals are associated with the cycles of time and life:  the seasons, the cycle of birth, growth, death, and then rebirth.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  Considered a powerful healing stone, blue Peruvian opals are said to reduce stress, promoting tranquility.  Quartz is said to be the universal healing stone & promotes hope, happiness & optimism. 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 one of a kind FROLICKING RABBIT artisan necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.
