The rich royal blue of the carved lapis pendant is echoed in ancient lapis beads and the contrasting warm tans and browns of neolithic agate disks. To create this pendant, I set it in a silver cap with delicately detailed Ginkgo leaves, an ancient tree representing longevity and vitality of the mind.
The brown neolithic beads certainly carry an energy of longevity, as they are up to 8,000 years old, showing their journey through the millennia in their unique shapes and patterns of wear. The ancient lapis beads with them are a paler blue, but with wear and attention, their tone will deepen and acquire richness. I have also added a few bright silver accent beads for some sparkle, as well as my signature serpent hook clasp.
