I love mixing textures together like, fabric, metals, & stones in jewelry, and this necklace definitely represents the joining of many different elements.

I wanted this piece to be earthy and spiritual, so I started with a pink opal geode that measures 2" and added an image from a vintage prayer card behind a rhinestone and glass pendant. I also added a Swarovski crystal and a small vintage prayer medal as the main focal point of the necklace.
As I continued adding to the pendant, I added ice flake quartz, took pieces from a vintage pearl necklace and added Swarovski crystal beads. I then braided hand-dyed fabric in ecru and mushroom, sewed on antique mother-of-pearl buttons, and made my own link in the back with an old watch fob. I finished the necklace with a stack of antique mother-of pearl buttons that I hung from small milky white beads (see last picture).

The entire necklace measures 36 inches. Because of the sewing, and all the different elements, this is truly a one-of-a-kind necklace!
