The Blooms collection plays on the beauty of gemstones and on the organical, almost stylized metal leaf shapes that surround, envelope and embrace them. Each piece of jewelry is like a flower blooming, caught in the moment of the revelation of its deeper secret, of its revealed beauty.
It makes me think about being “broken open”. How sometimes in life, we find ourselves under hardships and pain, only so that we are left more exposed, raw…open like a bloom, ready to show its beauty to the world.
This pendant features an Orange Agate. Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. Agate increases energy. However, because it is a grounding stone, it does not increase energy at all times, but rather enables bursts of energy as needed.
It’s created with a stained glass method called tiffany technique: the metalwork is done directly onto the stone, by using layers of silver, lead-free solder over copper.
The pendant is attached to a 66 cm (26 inches) black cotton string, closed with a lobster clasp and a 5 cm (2 inches) extender.
Once patinated and cleaned, I applied a layer of microcristalline wax to protect the metal and the stone. As for every costume jewelry, it’s best not to expose it to water, moisture, soap and lotions, to avoid the degradation of the patina.
In case of tarnishing, you can make it shiny again using a soft cotton cloth. Please avoid chemical and abrasive products.
I strive to create strong jewelry that will last you a lifetime, but please remember this is wearable art and it requires some special care.
One of a kind, artisan jewelry.
