“It was in a dream that I saw a child being born from the rocks, naked but well formed. And when she uncurled and lifted her head, light of purity and hope burst forth from her being. I knew then, she was the Child of Light, for I can feel her in my heart.”

This mixed media necklace was inspired by several very different elements - a bio-mechanical tattoo where they would tattoo an image of skin being ripped open revealing mechanical parts within. Operation salvage of an old pouch, where I had removed all the hardware but one that attracted me was a zipper with a leather pull. And then, a dream … well, THAT dream.

To be honest, I cannot even remember clearly the creative process of this necklace. I remember the beginning … I remember I wanted and HAD to embed a zipper in rock. ???. And then I remember the end. I remember when I finished the main part of the pendant and hooked it onto the chain, it didn’t feel right. It needed something else. After looking at it for half a day, I added the beautiful, huge turquoise. Similar color and striation to the Variscite bead within, yet different. ??? again.

And then just as I was writing this description, I looked over to the necklace hanging beside me and it suddenly dawned upon me. It was exactly the dream … the huge turquoise I had to add, was me. I was looking at the Child of Light being born from the rocks, just as I had in my dream. My hair stood on ends.
??? all answered.

And as I look at it even more … I can see that the huge turquoise symbolizes a Mother, looking at her child being born. Not unlike the experience I had, with my preemie Maia in the delivery room.

Salvaged Brass metal, salvaged zipper, salvaged watch gears, Clay, Paint, Sealer, 16g brass wires augmented by fire, chains and findings, a beautiful Variscite Bead and a genuine large Turquoise Bead.

* Circumference of the chain is approximately 29 inches.
