A 2-strand necklace of smooth and faceted Rock Crystal beads alternate and enhanced by decorative Brass caps
Rock Crystal was highly valued in Roman times and abundantly used in jewellery. I was captivated by the original 2,000 year old necklace and wanted to re-create a statement piece with the same cool strength and high impact yet totally wearable today. The resulting necklace embodies that spirit, strength and fluidity.
