“Messenger of Hope” Necklace. $1,075.

In the dark of winter, in the depths of drought, our world needs a messenger of hope. Wings summons one in the shape of the small medicine spirits of summer, this one wrought in silver and stone, here to share the promise of warmer winds and a world reborn. It’s Dragonfly, in the shapes and shades of the flowing waters and flowering earth of summer, body, wings, and antennae all cut freehand from sterling silver and hand-stamped to capture the light. The stampwork, like the body it adorns, evokes a spirit of transformation, wings spread in Art Nouveau’s gracefully flowing lines, body tall and strong in the angular geometry of the Art Deco period to follow. Beneath the head rests an inverted stylized heart; above it, two arched antennae. The head itself is a bright banded cabochon of malachite, the shades of a lush and fertile earth. A small flared bail hand-stamped in a repeating motif of the Sacred Directions holds the pendant securely to a strand of beads consisting of brilliantly banded malachite cubes alternating with short segments of translucent blue-violet iolite, anchored at either end by tiny doughnut rondels of electric blue azurite in malachite. The pendant is 2-1/8″ long, including bail, by 3″ across at the widest point; the malachite cabochon is 1/4″ across; the bead strand is 20″ long (dimensions approximate). Necklace coordinates with Medicine Spirits earrings, here. Full view shown below.
