Rising From The Sea Necklace and Earrings - Jewelry Fit For Mermaids!

Necklace and Earring set featuring blue stones and pearls set in sterling silver and gold

The stones came first, as they often do. I have had the Rare Plasma Agate (top stone on the necklace) for over 10 years--I always knew I wanted to do something special with it, but I didn't know what that looked like. It has so many layers and intricate patterns in it, that I didn't want to hide them behind a bezel. This past year, the Leland Blue stones came into my collection, and one day I realized they matched some of the blues in the first stone. An idea started warbling around in my gut...I could see them together, but they would need one more stone. 

Necklace featuring handmade chain, and three statement stones of Rare Plasma Agate, Leland Blue, and Pyritized Ammonite


Statement necklace featuring three stones set in sterling silver with humpback whale on the reverse of the largest stone

I have been inspired by the ocean--its animals and habitats--since I was very young. This is how inspiration comes together--like little strands slowly finding each other and weaving together. The stones of the necklace felt like ocean waters to me, so it only seemed appropriate to incorporate a Humpback whale into the necklace behind the largest stone. When I went searching for the third stone, the Pyritized Ammonite popped up. I know a sign from the universe when I see it! Thus, the Rising From The Sea necklace was born. 

Along the path of its making, I wanted to use the two other Leland Blue stones I had for a pair of earrings to match, but what would go with them? I knew that in my collection somewhere there was a pair of Keshi pearls that had been purchased long ago...it was just a matter of finding them. I cleaned the studio top to bottom. I reorganized my stones. I looked through drawers upon drawers, and still no pearls. Finally, I relented and decided that they would come forth from wherever they were hiding and when they did, I would pop them in a labeled box. They finally came out from hiding and now, I have a gorgeous pair of earrings to go with this stunning necklace!

Which ocean goddess do you think would wear these?
