This vibrant necklace features the classic combination of carnelian and lapis, a complementary colour combination found throughout the ancient world. Each ancient carnelian bead is etched in a unique design- from waves and dots to lines and geometric patterns. A dark carnelian shield shaped drop, etched on both sides with a zigzag pattern, is the focal point.
Between the carnelians are small bicone-shaped lapis beads, also ancient, in shades of royal blue. Bringing sparkle to the whole composition are my own scroll drops and signature serpent hook clasp in rich gold. This is a lively piece, full of dynamic energy and movement!
