Insouciant Studios Presents the Sacred Nature capsule collection, a line drawn from the raw beauty of plants, animals, and nature, and captured in minerals and metal. Many of the pieces in this collection feature stones and metals in their straight-from-nature forms, un-adulterated by faceting or polishing, while other pieces have been altered to better capture the dynamic essence of the natural world.
This necklace features a polished onion shaped bead of carnelian above a faceted amethyst, all supported by a fancy antique copper chain with a toggle closure. The colors here were inspired by the richness of a desert sunset.
Total Length 19 inches, Pendent 1 3/4 inch drop, 1/2 inch wide.
