Gem Collector's Pendant 6 - Maine Tourmaline, Welo Opal, Citrine, & Vesuvianite Necklace
ABOUT THE ART Being the sentimental collector that I am, after a transformative experience in the wilderness, I would procure a lovely little rock from each place to serve as a memento. They now all reside in a little dish on our coffee table. Pouring over these simple, yet meaningful stones always brings me back to those happy memories. A tiny red rock from my first camping trip as an 11-year-old, a green rock from the cove in which I experienced true peaceful solitude, a striped rock from a wilderness trip in college where I met my best friend, and even a rock from the Pictured Rocks cliffs where my husband proposed to me. Each serves as a sort of "trail marker" for a significant time in my life. This was my inspiration behind these pendants.
Each necklace features unique cuts of high grade turquoise, mined in the US, handcrafted into "collection" like settings. I intentionally curated colorful, mismatching stones- no two are alike, just as those picked up here and there along the trail; mementos of moments spent outdoors.

A NOTE ON WEAR I have chosen high quality materials to create a piece of artful jewelry that will last a lifetime. Although crafted with the adventurous spirit in mind, please take care while wearing my pieces as natural stones can be delicate. To prolong the life of your piece, I suggest you remove it while swimming, hiking, rock climbing, cliff jumping, skydiving or whatever other crazy and rigorous adventure you find yourself on!
