Art Nouveau Azurite
Art Nouveau has always been a favorite of mine. Taking inspiration from the unruly aspects of the natural world, these sinuous lines and curves were hand shaped and sculpted in silver wire using nature as my primary source of inspiration.
The beautiful azurite cabochon as the centerpiece is accented by faceted silver tendrils and beads. The saturated color ranges from bright to deep blue into shades of indigo. It has been ground into pigment for paint and used as a dye for fabric for thousands of years. The woven setting is sterling silver, adorned with nature inspired swirls. It comes on a silver plated 18in chain
To the inhabitants of Atlantis and the early Egyptians, Azurite was a potent stone, shrouded in mystery; its secrets known only to the highest priests and priestesses. It was called the Stone of Heaven by the ancient Chinese who believed it to open celestial gateways. For the Mayans, Azurite inspired the mystical self and facilitated the transfer of wisdom and knowledge via thought, while Native Americans used this sacred stone to contact their spiritual Indian guide, feel the presence and understand the message.
Clear away tension and confusion, and open your mind to new perspectives, all while looking fabulous of course 🙂
