The centerpiece of this necklace features a beautiful blue polished piece of Kyanite and a polished cabochon of blue Sodalite, with an underlying theme of flowers and leaves. Kyanite is a blue or green crystalline mineral consisting of aluminum silicate, and is commonly found in quartz veins, with a columnar or bladed crystal structure. Kyanite occurs in the Manhattan schist, formed under extreme pressure as a result of the two landmasses that formed the ancient supercontinent of Pangaea. Sodalite is a rich blue tectosillicate mineral, with opaque blue areas and translucent crystal areas. Large deposits of Sodalite are found in Canada, but also in Maine, Arkansas, South America, Russia and Greenland. I chose to set the two stones with a serrated sterling silver bezel, and backed with 24 gauge sterling sheet. I then embellished the front of the piece with an elaborate sterling silver flower. I created the hanger with a curved loop of sterling tubing, large enough for Sarah to run the beads through. The beads duplicate and contrast with the blues of the pendant centerpiece. These beads include additional blue Kyanite, Sodalite, cultured pearls, Swarovski crystal, and Czech glass. There are numerous sterling silver spacer beads and larger flower shaped sterling beads to add more sparkle to the necklace. The necklace is 20 inches in length, and the centerpiece measures 1 7/8 high, by 1 3/8 inches wide. This is a rich, regal looking piece and will go well with a variety of colors of clothing. Sure to be an eye catcher!
