'Diversity' Colorful Enamel Art Pendant one of a Kind
'Diversity' is a pendant with lots of Flavors. Circles big and small, lines crossing, colors and a misty background. To me this speaks of our differences. Each is so different , yet together we can be beautiful. The stones chosen for the hand built chain also reflect this. This pendant was created as a reminder, we don't need to all think alike to be friends. Set with Red Agate and Mookaite on silver and a hand formed chain, the chain is 22" in length and closes with a lobster claw. Both Red Agate and Mookaite has some great properties to help us in our lives.
Agate-are said to enhance mental functions as they improve concentration and perception, leading to practical solutions. Also said to encourage truthfulness and help with overcoming bitterness and emotional trauma. It supposedly heals inner anger, fostering love and courage to start again… and is said to help dissolve tension and help with self acceptance and overcome negativity and anger, said to foster love..
Mookaite is an Australian Jasper and is gaining popularity around the world for its unique energetic and healing qualities. Mookaite promotes strength, vitality, courage and physical healing. Probably the most unique energetic benefits Mookaite is known for is its anti-aging properties. It embraces the power of an ageless spirit which helps one to understand the correlation between the body and mind. It brings your beliefs about aging and degeneration to the conscious mind and imparts the knowledge that change is possible. It teaches the vibration of a young spirit, which assists in reducing the process of physical aging. It is also said to assist in clearing negative issues retained in genetic memory so the next generation does not have to inherit these issues. It also limits unhealthy energy or thought patterns from your auric field which may be associated with aging. As Mookaite is a protective stone, it is an ideal crystal to wear or keep in your handbag or car. It helps you to be alert to danger. Allowing you to choose another more favorable path or option. It aids in decision making and is a great crystal to travel with.
The chain: Every link to this chain I have formed and cut out of aluminum (links) and silver for the Red Agate and Mookaite stones. I used aluminum for two reasons, 1 it is so lightweight so the pendant will not weigh you down and 2 because is it a non tarnishing, non- reactive metal and will always keep its shine. The chain is 22" and is adjustable by where you hook the hook into the chain.
I love working with enamels! Some people say it is a flashback to the sixties. I was too young then to experience that and fell in love with them just recently. All my enamels are kiln fired. This is a process of melting glass onto the metal and it takes a minimum of three to four firings up tp 20 firings of each piece to achieve the color layers. Before you even start with that, there is the cutting of the shapes, the sanding of the metal and then the cleaning of the metal, all before you start with to add the color. It is a time intensive process.
Created in my Appalachian Studio in the heart of WV. Each piece is handcrafted to the perfection of the artist's eye, made by International Jewelry Designer Christine Keller of Chrizart Creations. It is made with all the love and good energy I can possibly put into a piece.
