I’ve had a rough couple of months, and two dear friends have really been there for me throughout them. I wanted to make them each a little something to thank them for all their love and kindness. Their willingness to listen, when I was just saying the same thing I’d said a hundred times before, and their ability to make me laugh when I needed it most.
The first is a pendant, made from a kit from one of my favorite jewelry designers, Candie Cooper. It includes a double point of quartz crystal, along with rose quartz, rose glass, and gold beads from TierraCast, on a base from Beadalon. It’s been wrapped in thin gold wire, and suspended from a burnt orange cord with sliding knots, so it can be worn as a long pendant, or a short choker.
I was drawn to the kit because the rose quartz is representative of caring, kindness, and friendship, while the quartz crystal is said to enhance the properties of the stones around it. I also knew the recipient would like the deep orange color of the cord.
The second pendant was for a friend who is trying to get pregnant. So this is my little fertility ‘good wish’ for her & her partner. It contains amethyst, rose quartz, aventurine, aquamarine, clear quartz, and two charms, a heart, and a little goddess figure.
The chain is sterling, and the findings are all either sterling, or sterling filled. The charm of the goddess is from TierraCast. The amethyst is for clarity, balance and protection; rose quartz is for unconditional love; aventurine for lighthearted sexuality and luck; aquamarine for calming, and clear quartz to enhance the properties of the stones around it.
I hope it brings her some luck, and lets her know there’s someone on her side, as she embarks on this journey.
