N°320 The Lapis Lazuli King Tide Statement Necklace
It turns out, humans have been mining Lapis Lazuli longer than Gold, and to this day our obsession with this calming deep indigo semi-precious stone shows no signs of abating. Like Lapis Lazuli, Carnelian – the second key player in this statement necklace was one of the earliest favoured stones. Being easy to work with and of such bold & vivid colours, both of these stones where found throughout the ancient world in jewellery and talismans.
Some psychologists suggest we all share such a continued sub-conscious attraction to this luscious stone because there is nothing much else on this planet that is of such intense blue colouring. For myself, I need no explanation as to why I love Lapis Lazuli – the deepness of the indigo with its fine golden pyrite inclusions fascinates me every time again. With this piece I tried to give this ancient stone a truly contemporary makeover by using large slabs juxtaposed with bold gold “fingers” and deep blood orange Carnelian.
Like all our pieces, it is one of a kind, handcrafted with love and care in our studio near Byron Bay.
