Sterling Silver, real Coral and Charoite.
Necklace measures approximately 20".
Looking at such beauty tells the capabilities of Southwestern art! The necklace is hand strung bead by bead by American artist Caitlin Cooper out of genuine sterling silver and real multicolor beads. Caitlin is known to create beautiful pieces of art you will have for years to come. The necklace consists of: 3-mm silver round beads, 5-mm Coral round beads, along with 8-mm Charoite round and rondelle beads. Each end of the necklace is completed with a silver cone and bead for an excellent finish. The cones are stamped sterling.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
Charoite was discovered in Russia in 1978 in a mountain in Yakutia, near the Charo River. The beautiful stone has an array of color ranging from bright lavender, violet and lilac to dark purple with a combination of white, gray and black matrix. Its glorious purple color features a unique combination of swirls, feathers and needles. Charoite is believed to enhance confidence, accelerate spiritual growth, and increase the ability to love. Some people believe that Charoite got its name because of the impression that it gives "Chary" which in Russian means "charms" or "magic".
