Polar Bear Dreams - A OOAK Pietersite cabochon offers an ethereal glimpse into the dream world of a polar bear. If you look carefully, you will see ice flows glistening in the moonlight and a Beluga peeking up out of the water to get a better view. The stone has been set with sterling silver Viking wire knitting, accentuating the northern seascape captured there.

In Norse mythology, Brisingamen refers to the necklace worn by the goddess Freyja. In Old Norse, brisingr is a poetic term refering to fire or amber. The goddess Freyja has been associated with love, sex, magic, fertility, gold, war and death. According to myth, she receives half of those who fall in battle, welcoming them to her hall in Folkvangr. (Baltic amber and gold-filled wire.)

Monet's Pool Pendant features a stunning Labradorite cabochon that captures colors featured in some of Monet's works, including Impression, Sunrise, Grand Canal, Venice, Cliff Walk at Pourville. It is a stunning reminder to take notice of the beauty of our surroundings, to experience them fully with our senses and be mindful of the nuances of each subsequent moment in that setting. The cabochon is set in knitted 14/20 rose gold filled wire and suspended on a matching 20 inch chain.

Introducing Midnight Blue, a stunning oval Labradorite cabochon in a setting of antiqued sterling silver Viking wire knitting on a matching 20 inch chain. The sky blue stone and charcoal/gray/blue tones of the antiqued silver capture the beauty of corvids in flight against a clear sky. It serves as a reminder to take joy in what you can do and to share these moments with the people who mean the most to you. This piece is part of The Story Pendant Collection from The Purple Raven Boutique.

Presenting the Golden Glitter Pendant, part of the Traditions Collections. A tear drop shaped Golden Rutile Quartz cabochon is cradled in Viking wire knitting in 14/20 gold-filled wire. As you peer through the cabochon, you see streaks of what appears to be gold. Iron oxides have been trapped in the quartz, just as glitter appears to trap sunlight after a storm. Unlike nature's golden glitter which often fades in the sun, this piece will remind you of that magic moment for years to come.

The Beach Fire Pendant features a golden-colored Labradorite cabochon wrapped in a setting of knitted rose gold filled wire and suspended on a 19 inch matching chain fitted with a lobster clasp. It will remind you of those warm summer evenings long after the last leaves have fallen.
