For the woman who loves original, handcrafted jewelry, this faceted garnet and sterling silver pendant features a one-of-a-kind abstract pattern; resulting in a versatile and timeless jewelry accessory. Garnet, the birthstone for January, has been known to attract love and abundance. It is associated with the root chakra, thus being good for grounding (keeping one in the present moment). Fun fact: in ancient times, garnets were exchanged as gifts between friends to demonstrate their affection for each other and to insure that they meet again.
With the desire to create a higher-end birthstone collection, I source high quality gemstones and create unique silver backgrounds for each pendant. I use heat, no solder, to fuse the hand-cut silver pieces to its sterling silver base, resulting in a pendant rich in texture yet comfortable and durable.
