Lapis & Dragonfly Necklace, Blue Lapis Gemstone Nugget
For this original necklace design I have chosen a lapis gemstone nugget, hand-faceted to show is rich blue color flecked with tiny glints of gold mica. I've wire-wrapped the nugget to hold a wee dragonfly charm dangling gently below, and the pendant falls from a fancy scroll connector at the front of the necklace.
This beautiful blue gemstone necklace combines the gentle energy of lapis with the ethereal symbolism of the dragonfly - a captured moment of peace for its wearer.
The lovely rich blue gemstone, Lapis Lazuli, has been highly prized for use in jewelry throughout history, and is said to promote friendship and goodwill. It is known as the stone of truth and integrity, and is thought to enhance wisdom, inner vision and mental clarity. The dragonfly is a symbol of serenity, of positive change and growth - together lapis and the dragonfly create wonderful synergy and harmony.
Each side of the necklace has a sprinkle of hand-linked tiny glass trade beads and the necklace is completed with delicate silver plate ball chain. Lapis is one of the birthstones for September, and the color blue relates to the number 2 which is the number of partnerships and being together with others.
The necklace chain is available in 3 lengths - 40cm (16") to 50cm (20") - and the pendant drops 6cm (2.4 inches). The closure is a small silver-plated lobster clasp.
A meaningful treat for yourself or for gifting, this pretty necklace comes in attractive packaging with a small card of the symbolic meaning.
