Spring has Sprung: Elegant Aventurine & Fancy Silver Leaf Necklace

2015-03-23-Spring-Green-Aventurine-Glass-Crystal-Leaf-Necklace-Sun-Silver-2

This elegant necklace combines faceted green aventurine beads with wee peridot glass crystals and silver-plated spacers and accent beads. The square silver beads feature a beautiful sun design; there are also a few oak leaf beads in the upper portion of the necklace. The large leaf pendant is just lovely; suspended from it are several glass crystal baubles, as well as an aventurine bauble hung from the tip. Additionally, there is an aventurine cabochon in silver plated setting in front of the leaf.

All metal components are silver-finished base metals or Tibetan silver.

The length is approximately 23″, including the lobster clasp. The pendant hangs down about 4.25″ from the beaded strand.

As with most of my necklaces, this piece could easily be shortened at no extra charge. Please allow extra time for making alterations, and contact me prior to purchasing to make sure that I am able to fulfill your request. If you require a longer length, please purchase an inexpensive extender chain from the add-on section of my shop or get in touch to discuss a custom order.

Everything is strung on sturdy, flexible, nylon-coated 49-strand stainless steel beading wire.

Rose quartz is associated with the heart chakra. It can help open us to all forms of love; its energies are useful in boosting self-confidence and self-worth. Rose quartz is a powerful but gentle healing stone and can specifically help with encouraging self-awareness, dreamwork, trust, harmony and dispelling negativity. It is also often used in fertility magic.

Rhodonite is named after the Greek word for rose, because of its pink and reddish hues. It has a strong connection to the heart chakra, so it is wonderful for balancing and healing related to emotions, relationships, etc. Use to foster unconditional love and forgiveness, and for emotional balance in general. Wear to help you hold onto patience and calm during stressful or traumatic periods; it can also be quite helpful in fostering self esteem, self confidence, self love, and encouraging compassion. Darker shades of rhodonite have been reported to be especially helpful with issues related to hormonal imbalance. Some find the stone helpful with inflammation, arthritis, lung ailments, fertility and joint-related issues. Also known to help with detoxification and skin problems. Meditate with rhodonite to help you discover and learn how to use your inherent gifts. Eases impatience and helps ground negative energy away.
