cool water kyanite
February 17, 2010 at 5:07 pm
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.
