Spiral Gold Rush Pendant Necklace Fancy Jasper Pearls Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

When you pair a beautifully rustic pendant with sleek, earthy gemstones, you can’t help but to create visual goodness!  The INVOLUTE handmade necklace proves that! The one of a kind necklace features an artisan created pendant, fancy jasper ovals and freshwater pearls.  As you can see in the photos, the rustic pendant is very unique, looking like an old artefact from times past. Created from off white polymer clay, the pendant features an eye catching textured design of sacred spirals, glittering gold flakes and a small, round cut out.  Reminiscent of flakes of gold floating down a river filled with spiraling eddies and whirlpools, the pendant was carefully hand painted in pale mossy greens, dark mauve and dark browns above; the lower half was left the natural color, the spirals enhanced with brown.  The gold flakes are painted in a reflective antique gold color which subtly catches the light and shines when the pendant is turned this way and that. The back is smooth with a pale wash of green and peach. Two heavy duty copper jump rings connect the pendant to the main body of the necklace. 
To perfectly enhance the necklace, fancy jasper ovals and glowing freshwater pearls were used.  Fancy jasper, a gorgeous semi-precious gemstone, is known for its rich, earthy color palette of mauves, lilacs, creams, browns and greens, sometimes all mixed together in the same stone.  Eighteen glossy fancy jasper ovals were used, each oval separated by shiny freshwater pearls that are a pale mauve color, matching the mauves of the pendant. The luster of the pearls is exquisite - you can see my reflection in the pearls in many of the photos.  Small copper beads separate the pearls from the jasper. Three freshwater pearls and a sleek copper toggle clasp set finishes the necklace. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the INVOLUTE artisan necklace is a perfect gift idea for the woman who adores wearing unique, one of a kind jewelry with a rustic but sleek flair.  "Involute" means "curved spirally"

Sacred spirals are one of the most ancient symbols in use since at least the late Paleolithic era; they represent the unfolding changes during the journey of life. Fancy Jasper is said to facilitate tranquility and help eliminate worry; it also helps increase our enjoyment of life.  Pearls are used to spread loving vibrations; they promote sincerity, truth and loyalty. Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.


The INVOLUTE 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!
