Pumice Lava Rock Necklace, Wood Turquoise Magnesite Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The unique SUEÑOS DE LA TIERRA handmade necklace has such a beautifully neutral color scheme that you will be able to wear it with a wide range of outfits - pale colors of the desert with bits of blue representing the sky.  The one of a kind necklace features creamy white “lava” rock pumice tubes, earthy wooden beads and turquoise magnesite discs along with a liberal sprinkling of copper.  Since real lava rock only comes in black and brown, the lovely tubes used in the SUEÑOS DE LA TIERRA necklace is actually pumice, another type of volcanic stone - lava rock is a trade name for both.  Pumice is created when super heated rock is ejected from a volcanic eruption and, due to rapid cooling once the rock hits the air, small gas bubbles are trapped.  As you can see in the photos, the pumice tubes are filled with tiny holes, which also makes the stones very light in weight.  Pumice can be quite rough on the skin, but these tubes have been ground to a silky smoothness so there are no worries about irritation when the necklace is worn.  Thirteen creamy white pumice tubes were used, all with a copper daisy spacer at each side to separate them from the rest of the beads.
A pale brown wooden bead and a bright blue turquoise magnesite disc is found between each pumice tube.  The wooden beads add an earthiness to the necklace design, especially since many have natural stripes.  The permanently dyed turquoise magnesite discs add a pop of unexpected, fun color to the design.  The back of the necklace is finished with three wooden beads and three turquoise magnesite discs interspersed with copper beads and spacers.  A pure copper hook clasp set with a raised dot design securely fastens the necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the SUEÑOS DE LA TIERRA necklace is a perfect gift for the woman who loves unique, one of a kind artisan jewelry that can be worn with a wide range of outfits. “Sueños de la tierra" is Spanish for “dreams of the earth.”

Pumice is believed to absorb and then purify negative energy.  Wood is a symbol of stability, strength and being firmly grounded.  Magnesite is said to help turn dreams into realities.  Copper is believed to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  

The unique SUEÑOS DE LA TIERRA handmade 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!
