Mother of Pearl Rose Necklace, Purple Pearls Handmade Flower Jewelry

Item Description

With a radiant mother of pearl shell flower pendant, the GARDEN OF THE OCEAN handmade necklace makes an absolutely delightful statement whenever worn.  The one of a kind necklace features a glowing white mother of pearl carved pendant, rich purple baroque pearls and lead free pewter lantern beads. A beautiful hand carved rose with flowing petals and a stem with two leaves can be found in the middle of the mother of pearl pendant.  A line was carved all along the outer edge. Because of the carving, the pendant has beautiful texture which is highlighted when the light hits it just right. Unfortunately, the photos don’t show just how luminous the natural radiance of the shell is as the light plays across it. It’s almost as if the pendant has its own internal light source!  The back is silky smooth and slightly concave. For security, a heavy duty sterling silver jump ring attaches the pendant to the main body of the necklace.
 
To highlight the pendant perfectly, rich purple freshwater pearls make up the main body of the necklace.  Since the large beauties are more oval shape, with many having natural ridges, they are called baroque pearls.  Between each set of three pearls at the front of the necklace are glowing pewter lantern beads separated by sterling silver daisy spacers and small sterling beads.  Each pearl is separated from the other with sterling silver beads for a sinuous feel. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the GARDEN OF THE OCEAN necklace is a lovely gift for the woman who adores unique artisan jewelry.

Roses have long been a symbol of love and passion.  Mother-of-pearl is believed to stimulate intuition, sensitivity and imagination; additionally, it symbolizes faith & charity.  Pearls are used to spread loving vibrations; they are said to promote sincerity, truth and loyalty.  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.
