cool water kyanite

kyanite has this cool ability to reflect light while showing off its inky depths.  it reminds me of a deep mountain lake sparkling in the sunlight.

i combined it with some of the sterling silver that i have oxidized and hand-burnished to a high shine.  the cool blue black brings out the inclusions of the stone.

i couldn’t find a single strand that looked just right with this stone, so i entwined a royal blue leather cord with a periwinkle hand-dyed and sewn silk cord.  it’s finished off with more oxidized sterling silver hardware.

it’s available at my etsy store for $38 USD and wants to go out on the town with you.  part of the delicas collection.
