I am so in love with the landscapes surrounding me in Arizona. From the mountains and high desert where I live in southeastern Arizona to the red rocks and canyons of areas like Sedona. The colors are always spectacular, especially the sunrises and sunsets.
This necklace features a godet style copper pendant hand flame painted with one of those amazing landscapes by copper artist Kathleen Hamilton. I have paired this focal piece with large Chrysocolla barrel beads alternated with Czech fire polished beads, hand stamped and hammered copper beads and small multi hued Czech glass maple leaf beads. The result is a wonderfully earthy necklace varied shades of browns, greens, coppery golds and reds.
The neclace is approximately 23 inches long, with the beautiful copper focal measuring approximately 3 inches wide by 3 inches high. It closes with a gorgeous handmade copper spiral hook and eye clasp.
THE STONE MEDICINE:
Chrysocolla is a form of hydrated copper that represents female energy (Goddess energy) and wisdom. It has a gentle, calm and nurturing energy that helps us communicate from a place of pure love and acceptance. It helps bring our heart and throat center in harmony and speak our truth without fear or guilt. Chrysocolla helps us feel the Earth's energy and understand what it needs to be healed.
