Astarte

Inspired by ancient gold beads, this necklace is made with the goddess Astarte, in mind. I love the deep, uneven dimples on the surface. It is as if they had been buried for centuries, with the twisted wire edge of the openings on each side.

Lapis Lazuli

Originating from Afghanistan, lapis lazuli has been used as an ornamental material in jewels, inlay work and as azure paint for over 6000 years. With a typically resinous and mottled appearance, the metamorphic rock is acclaimed for its intensely vivid and opaque ultramarine blue colour. Unusually for a gemstone it is a rock, not a mineral.
