New Stichtite Necklace
What is stichtite, you ask? Well, it's a stone of dark pink or purple color and is sometimes found in serpentine, which can be all shades of green.
The stone featured in this necklace is the type of stichtite found in serpentine. The contrast of the greens and purple is one that is very striking to me.
I added a little dangle of faceted amethyst to help highlight the purple of the stichtite inclusions.
The chain and all the wire is sterling and has been oxidized for a bit of a vintage look.
This brand new necklace is for sale in my etsy shop.
I will not be updating my blog for a few days while I'm at the Bad Girls of the North craft show in Anchorage. We will be at a new location this year, the Millennium Hotel. If you're a local, please stop by! Hopefully, I will have time to take some pictures and share some of our new vendors with you here.
