A Midsummer Night’s Dream

When I first saw these Apatite nuggets I was drawn simply to the color. But the more I looked at them the more I loved them for their ancient quality – like something found in an archaeological dig – asymmetrically faceted slabs, they are cracked and pitted in places which give them a unique charm. Even my 9 year old son commented – “These are cool, Mom! I love the cracks!” Indeed. To enforce the museum feel, I’ve enhanced them with 24K gold vermeil and large Faceted Smokey Quartz Rondelles. To modernize the look I incorporated smooth labradorite pebbles. I love the contrast. As you move about, the labradorite beads flash gorgeous shades of blue and olive . . . yummmmm.

The pendant necklace is 24″ long and the bead chain necklace is 20″ long with an extender.  They are designed to be worn layered but look gorgeous on their own. 

Soon to be available in my Etsy store where my seller name is “queeniejewels”. Hope to see you there!
