"An Appetite for Apatite” – a depths-of-the-sea coloured designer statement necklace of apatite and crystal clear quartz”

>

Length: 22.5/57cm  Weight: 6.2oz/175g

Components:  gemstones (apatite and crystal quartz)

 

Apatite gemstone occurs in a range of colours, and this necklace is a spectacular example.  The stones are somewhat transparent and crystalline, and range from the dark teal and bright turquoise of ocean waves to the deepest dark brown depths of the sea.

 

It is in opposition to the darker tones that I have picked up the bright crystal notes of the sun sparkling on the waves as an accent.

 

Four big polished chunks form the backbone of this design.  Beathing space between them is provided by sparkling crystal quartz “grouplets”.

 

From the base, three smaller strands issue forth:  one of a similar cut and style as the larger stones, one hexagonal containing lots of turquoise hues, and the last a smaller hexagonal one of a deep teal green. 

 

Silver miyuki crystals punctuate the strands of gemstones as a reflection of the clear crystal quartz treatment of the major statement.

 

A simple and unusual rectangular wave-shaped toggle clasp brings it all together.

 

Make an elegant statement in this distinctive and exclusive piece of wearable art, designed and hand-made by me.
