Peaceful Face Stepping Stone Necklace, Mexican Fire Opal Jewelry Gift

Item Description

The one of a kind STEPPING STONE pendant necklace is full of rich, deep meaning.  The unique handmade necklace features an artisan handmade stepping stone pendant, gorgeous faceted natural Mexican fire opal and copper.  Created from a mellow orange polymer clay, the pendant is a scalloped stepping stone design with a peaceful face in gray, mini pebble “stumbling blocks” to the right of the face and four cup and ring designs (symbols dating back to prehistoric time) along the right edge.  The face is in peaceful repose presumably because it has turned each stumbling block into a stepping stone, positive lessons learned along the path of life. Since the face and the stepping stones are raised, the pendant is loaded with incredible texture. The other symbols are engraved into the polymer clay and darker painted “missteps” are scattered on the pendant.  The back of the stepping stone is smooth. Because the pendant was created from polymer clay, the necklace is lightweight to wear.  It’s connected securely to the main body of the necklace with a heavy duty copper jump ring.   
Perfectly complementing the stepping stone pendant are amazing ombre Mexican fire agate gemstone discs.   Mexican fire opal is a variety of opal with natural colors that range from a dark orange to clear, with about every shade of orange in between.  To add even more fiery elegance, each disc in the necklace is faceted for incredible sparkle (wish the photos could show that!). Since the fire opal discs are hand cut, they are similar in size but not exactly the same.  Groupings of the opals are separated by small copper beads. A two-toned copper toggle clasp set, which is partly patinated and partly shiny, finishes the necklace. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the meaningful STEPPING STONE necklace is a perfect jewelry gift for the woman who is experiencing some difficulty in life, a talisman to turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones.

A stepping stone represents an action that helps you make progress towards a specified goal.  Mexican Fire Agate is believed to strengthen the courage to follow our spiritual path, even into the dark places we fear, and to emerge triumphantly again into the light.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.


The STEPPING STONE artisan 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!
