Quartz Points Black Onyx Gemstone Necklace Handmade Beaded Jewelry

Image Description
WHISPERS OF THE UNTOLD is an absolutely unique, stunning handmade gemstone necklace! This one of a kind (OOAK) beaded beauty was created with natural quartz point, black onyx teardrops and sterling silver. A beautiful piece of jewelry that will add WOW factor to whatever it is worn with, WHISPERS OF THE UNTOLD was designs and carefully handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.

WHISPERS OF THE UNTOLD is a necklace that definitely look better in person than in photographs! I had such a hard time trying to photograph the quartz because, with the exception of natural reddish iron inclusions, the quartz is very clear - so clear that the shadows underneath the points show through causing some of the points to look grayish. The gray look is definitely NOT the case! Please look at photograph #5 to get a truer sense of the beauty of the quartz. That being said, the quartz is simply stunning! They are graduated in size, but since they are natural, the shapes and widths from one to the next are different. And because they are naturally faceted (many are 6-sided), they sparkle and glitter as the light hits them from different angles. Mesmerizing when the necklace is worn! I mentioned earlier that some of the quartz contains natural reddish iron inclusions, which, to me, adds more interest. I love the look of the inclusions and purposely used out points with the inclusions, although not all have them.

When I first saw the points, I immediately knew black onyx needed to be used with them. Black onyx teardrops were chosen to mimic the shape and drop of the quartz points and to provide even more amazing texture to the necklace. The black onyx have teardrops have a very fine, shiny finish which imparts a wonderful glow to WHISPERS OF THE UNTOLD. A single teardrop, framed with 2mm sterling silver beads, was placed between each point. The back of the was finished with nothing but the teardrops - look at the way they lay in alternating directions!

To finish the necklace, sterling silver wire protectors connect to a sterling silver s-clasp set. The s-clasp set has a beautiful oxidized cross hatch finish, a perfect finish to a perfectly beautiful necklace!

Quartz is believed to be the universal healing stone and promotes hope, happiness and optimism while awakening the wearer to the beauty of nature.
