Faerie and Frog Fantasy Necklace With Vesuvianite, Peridot, Citrine and Black Onyx

389.00

A truly unique and magical necklace to wear and treasure. A frog and faerie peer out to view what is happening in their glen. While the frog clings to a branch, magic swirls in the background, which is all framed by twisting branches and embellished with sparkling stones of Aurora Borealis Green Vesuvianite, Peridot, Citrine and Black Onyx .

Faeries are guardians of earth energy, are fond of animals and those humans who care for them. Of course faeries are also ethereal, they have magic, sometimes using it for good and at other times to stir up mischief. Frogs are a symbol of cleansing and transformation. They refresh, purify and refill. They speak of abundance, fertility and new opportunities. Dangling from the Faerie and Frog, as well as the chain, are a combination of beautiful beads. Aurora Borealis Green Vesuvianite helps with spiritual growth and to move forward in your life. Black Onyx helps in decision making, encourages happiness and good fortune. Peridot helps to increase confidence and Citrine transmutes negativity.

After I finished my collection of Spirit Animals I moved on to combining faeries with animals. I've always loved both faeries and animals, but this jewelry collection is the first time that I've combined them together in one piece. The combination of faerie and animal interacting together has totally possessed me and I hope the magic I've felt in the creation process is conveyed to you in this finished piece of fairy tale jewelry.

The focal point of Faerie and Frog Pendant is 1 1/4 inches wide by 1 3/4 inches tall, the attached chain has a lobster claw clasp which can be attached in a variety places making the necklace adjustable 16 - 22 inches long. Being able to change the length of the necklace makes it versatile for a wide variety of necklines as well as body types. The end of the chain is finished with a Citrine and Black Onyx Beads. A dark patina has been applied to enhance the detail and give contrast to this magical piece of fantasy jewelry. The angled view of the woodland necklace shows the dimension of the piece. I also have a version of this faerie necklace made into a pendant, look in the faerie section of my shop.

I started by creating a detailed pencil drawing of this fantasy jewelry design to refine my idea and layout the design of the piece. I then begin to sculpt everything in wax, first by addressing the overall composition, then proportion and musculature of the individual characters, lastly overlaying all of it with detailing. This was a very time and labor intensive process; including facial expressions, wings and branches. After the wax sculpture is complete it is cast in sterling silver, excess metal is removed, rough polished, and patina applied. I have left the background dark to add depth and contrast to this piece of faerie jewelry. Hand polishing followed by a coat of Renaissance Wax is gives the silver a soft glow and helps protect against tarnish. It is a time consuming process, but one that I thoroughly enjoy. For more detailed information on my wax sculpting and casting process go to www.mystcswan.biz and look at the "Creation Process" and "Wax Sculpting" sections.

Take magic with you into your day with this beautifully unique pendant.
