Chrysoprase Necklace




The whole time I was making this piece I was daydreaming about the beach…..about how I would love to live there and be able to look out my bedroom window and see the ocean when I wake up and before I fall asleep.  I have so many happy memories on our Oregon beaches.  We still try to get there as often as possible as we’re only 1-1/2 hours away from there.  So much love went into making this necklace that when I was thinking about what shape to cut out on the backside so the light could shine through, I decided on a heart.  Beautiful free form shape Chrysoprase cabochon the color of the ocean, bezel set in fine silver onto a sterling silver backplate.  Pendant measures 1” (25mm) at widest point x 2” (52mm) long.  Stamped on the backside with my makers mark and sterling. Hangs on an 18” sterling silver Rolo chain.
