The Necklaces of Stone-Hearted Woman
Jewels of the Earth Humbly Restrung
What kind of jewelry designer makes necklaces out of rocks, you ask? “Ah,” I answer, “the kind lucky enough to have once walked into a very special museum and fallen in love with the phantasmagoria of shapes, colors and textures that are nature’s treasures.” These “museum size “jewels” weren’t affordable, but after a few happy months spent collecting mini-sized versions and seeing how impactfully they could be arranged, I made a necklace of fossils and small minerals and loved the gutsy, unique beauty of it and the comforting, substantive feeling of it around my neck. I was bereft, though, once my necklace was finished and there was no need to continue my treasure hunt in every mineral store I came upon. “Hmm,” I thought wistfully, “maybe there are other women who’d love these one-of-a-kind necklaces, too.”
And so was born Stone-Hearted Woman. It’s become my mini-mineral collection while each stone is in my keeping–and necklaces I hope you’ll wear and treasure once they’re in yours.
Oh…and to answer the obvious concern before you need to ask:
No, these necklaces aren’t too heavy! Some definitely have a “presence”, but many of the stones are surprisingly lightweight, and I “test drive” every single necklace to make sure that what weight there is, is well balanced and rests firmly on the top of the shoulders for support and stability. You’ll be pleasantly surprised!
