Garnet Necklace with Handmade Copper Pendant,
I started with the pendant. It was hand sculpted from Copper Clay, then fired in my kiln for 4.5 hours, hand polished and the tumbled for hours and hours. I finished the pendant with a clear lacquer coat to avoid further oxidation. I then set the 3mm Garnet Cabochon.
The chain is hand wired Garnets and measures 20" in length and finished with a handmade hook and eye closure.
The gemstone Garnet is the official birthstone for January as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912. It is also the stone for the Zodiac sign Aquarius.
Garnet's powers include healing, strength, and protection and it is often worn to relieve inflammations of the skin. It is also believed to regulate the heart and blood flow and aid in curing depression. In earlier times, garnets were exchanged as gifts between friends to demonstrate their affection for each other and to insure that they meet again.
