I am on my final units at the New York Institute of Art and Design. I have to create my own line. I have always loved gemstones and how different stones can make a person feel.
I have studied the meanings and lore behind the stones. I have created my first three pieces and named them Layered Protection.
The set is made from Red Creek Jasper, Red and Black Agate, Honey Jade, Jet, Czech glass, Miyuki Yellow AB Triangle Beads, suede leather cord, GP findings, 24k Gold Flex Wire, GP chain. I am thinking of adding a pendant that can be added to the necklace.
The pendant will be one of the Red Creek Jasper stones wire wrapped to look like a sea turtle. The Turtle was a symbol of protection to the Druids and also the Native American Indians.
