Blue lace agate stone and hand-pierced penstemon cutout. Sterling silver pendant hangs from 18" sterling silver chain.
Penstemon was traditionally used to treat stings and sunburns and other skin wounds. Its primary quality is said to be Courage.
Every piece of jewelry is handcrafted at my home studio from raw materials. The stones are carefully selected from master lapidaries. When picking out the stones, I look for cut and color, attempting to find the most vibrant and inspirational elements to add to my work. All of the metals start as wire and sheet metal, that I transform into heirloom pieces of art.
