“A Little Jar of Rain” Necklace. $625. SOLD.

Ribbon Turquoise Teardrop Closeup Resized

A ribbon of rain drizzles into a little earthen jar in the shape of a traditional clay olla. It’s the freshest water possible, a gift from the sky to sustain the people. Here, it’s manifest in a piece of ribbon turquoise, a brilliant sky-blue river across a teardrop of earth-toned host rock. Hand-stamped flowing designs evoking traditional pottery patterns mark the reverse. The jar’s lid is a tiny piece of emerald-green malachite; a little water leaks from the bottom to form individual silver droplets. The pendant hangs from beads hand-strung over sterling silver wire: Florentine-finish silver beads flank the pendant itself, backed by copper-colored trade-style beads over the main part of the strand; at either end are two pearlized gray beads finished by a single onyx bead at each finding. Strand is 17″; pendant, including bail, hangs 2.5″ (dimensions approximate). Reverse shown below.
