Kinship Strand: Earth & Sky

Inspired by the wild west & created in the light of a new moon, my Kinship Strands are a circle dance of seed, glass, gem, heishi, stone & turquoise beads! They are a celebration of color, spirit, individuality & affinity....ties that bind us.

This is my Earth & Sky collection, representing a kinship with all the creatures of the earth and the elements of the sky. The design is clean & colorful, featuring beads in earthly shades and celestial hues! Some feature a wonderful, cascading waterfall of natural gemstones! These beaded strands range in random lengths of 20-32 inches long and are one of a kind. Varying lengths to layer. An assortment of colors to mix & match. Wear one, wear them all! 
Esoteric. 
Ethereal. 
Exquisite.









~ This necklace measures 25" long. It features a colorful collection of gems and stones: Amethyst, Carnelian, Citrine, Peridot, Natural Turquoise & Turquoise Heishi, Quartz, glass & seed beads in the colors of sunshine, milky kiwi, shamrock & sour apple green, iris, hyacinth, cornflower, cobalt, aqua & turquoise blue. I used a teal color silk/metal blended thread, lead free, silver plated floral bead & findings.

I created a total of 4 strands in this color way of yellow/blue/green, with this being the only necklace featuring hand-knotted gemstones on a strong, silk blend thread. It is designed with a lobster clasp opening and looks lovely paired with any of the sunshine & shamrock toned Earth & Sky necklaces! ~
