The hand carved mother of pearl pendant used in the GARDEN OF THE OCEAN necklace has an amazingly detailed rose with leaves motif.  I wish the photos showed 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.  A rose with its flowing petals can be found in the middle of the pendant; its stem has two leaves.  A carved line is found all along the outer edge of the pendant.  Because of the carving, the pendant has beautiful texture which is highlighted when the light hits the rose just right.  The back of the mother of pearl rose pendant is smooth and slightly concave.  A heavy duty sterling silver jump ring attaches the pendant to the main body of the necklace for security. 


To highlight the glowing mother of pearl pendant perfectly, large medium purple freshwater pearls make up the main body of the necklace, each one with its own eye catching gleam.  Since the purple beauties are more oval shape, many having natural ridges, they are called baroque pearls.  The shades of purple range from a luscious medium berry purple to a purple that has some copper pink.  Adding even more glow, lead free pewter lantern beads were placed bwteen each set of three pearls at the front of the necklace, separated from the pearls by sterling silver daisy spacers and small sterling beads.  Each pearl is separated from the other with sterling silver beads for a sinuous feel.  The necklace is finished with a lead free pewter hook clasp set with a textured wrapped wire design.  


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.


The GARDEN OF THE OCEAN mother of pearl and pearls 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!
