I've been collecting beautiful rocks and stones for many years. As a child, I enjoyed collecting the rocks from a neighbor's driveway and using a hammer to look at all the crystals inside. This nurtured my love for naturally occurring stones. One day, I came across a little stone garden, and in searching through it, I found the most beautiful collection of river rocks. This necklace is an exploration of a love for natural things.
The necklace is comprised of soft leather, my special river rocks, and fair trade sari silk. The stones are both sewn and secured on, so they're not going anywhere. The little thread designs remind me of the way water may have twisted around the stones, hugging them a little more to create their curves. And for the bit of glitz and glam in me, I added a little bit of gold shimmer.
The sari silk ribbons make the necklace adjustable. You can wear it as a choker, or as a 32 inch (81.28 cm) long necklace or anything in between!
This would make a perfect gift, especially for someone with metal allergies!
