The unique pendant used as the focal of the SERENDIPITY necklace is striking as well as meaningful.  The pendant was hand carved from a single piece of creamy light green jade. Which makes it all the more amazing because the center part of the pendant moves!  It has the calming feel of a worry stone. The carved design has a five petaled flower look to it, representing a lotus flower seed pod with the center part as a single lotus seed.  The translucent jade was given a dark brown “Picasso finish” which settled into the carved areas to highlight the intricate detailing. A hand wrapped sterling silver wire rustic bail was created  to connect the lovely pendant to the main body of the necklace.
***  Meaning of the lotus and lotus seed pods:  The lotus flower, seed pods and seeds are a symbol of spiritual growth and the ability to overcome obstacles on the path to spiritual enlightenment.  The lotus grows through muddy waters into the light and then transforms into a beautiful flower. The lotus maintains its peace, beauty and purity through all obstacles it faces.
To perfectly bring out the beauty of the jade pendant, lustrous banded eye agate nuggets were used to create the main body of the SERENDIPITY necklace.  The agate gemstones are silky smooth and slightly graduated, the largest closest to the pendant, the smallest closest to the clasp. Most of the nuggets are translucent and glow when you hold them up to the light, although a few are opaque.  The nuggets are shot through with bands and splotches and “eyes” of white, black, brown and tan. Many have a round “eye” which are greatly sought after since they are supposed to ward off the evil eye. Check out the photos and you’ll see many with “eyes.”  Between the first five nuggets are shiny pewter beads in a hexagon shape with small sterling beads on either side. The rest of the agate is separated by a single sterling silver bead. A lovely hammered sterling silver hook clasp finishes the one of a kind necklace.

In many cultures, the Lotus flower is a symbol of spiritual growth and the ability to overcome obstacles on the path to spiritual enlightenment.  Banded “Eye” Agates are believed to ward off the evil eye or curses; they also are believed to bring the wearer health, prosperity and security. Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  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 beautiful SERENDIPITY jade 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!
