“Light In a Darkening World” Necklace. $2,000. SOLD.

We live by the light in a darkening world. Sometimes, it’s illumination of an answer to a prayer; at others, it’s the bolt of lightning that brightens our path in the storm. Wings summons light and bearer alike with this powerful necklace, one in which Eagle, the messenger of the spirits, transcends his usual heights to become Thunderbird, the bearer of lightning who commands the winds and summons the storm. His great bold form is cut freehand of sterling silver, beak firmly hooked, tailfeathers spread and wings arcing wide and strong. Tailfeathers are hand-scored with long, clean lines; symbols of the light in the shape of the sunrise in all its forms articulate their top and bottom and the coverts of his great wings. A single tiny hoop creates his lone fierce eye, accented above and below by tiny scalloped brackets. Over his heart, a highly domed cabochon of brilliant boulder opal in the shape of an inverted teardrop rests in the embrace of a scalloped bezel trimmed with twisted silver, the opal forming a great bolt of visionary blue lightning down the surface of the earthy host rock. To his lower right he carries a single round jewel in the shade of the storm’s own mysterious light, translucent violet iolite that picks up the colors in the bead strand. Eagle hangs by way of a sturdy silver bail hand-milled in the whorled rocky pattern, suspended from a lengthy strand of large round Labradorite beads, uncommonly blue and iridescent, interspersed with lengths of smaller round sterling silver beads. Pendant hangs 3″ long by 2-1/4″ across at the widest point; bail is 9/16″ across; boulder opal cabochon is 1″ long by 1/4″ across at the widest point; iolite cabochon is 3/16″ across; bead strand is 18-3/4″ long (dimensions approximate).
