A powerful necklace with a handmade beadwork and soutache Goddess pendant - the Goddess has a face of a carved tiger eye gemstone, surrounded by beadwork and soutache with a halo of Czech glass dagger beads and individual crystals, each one surrounded by soutache braiding. A little third eye of a Czech glass droplet dangles in front of the forehead of this beautiful Goddess.
The body of the Goddess is made of tiger iron, which is a naturally occurring combination of tiger eye and haematite, with a beautiful flashing chatoyance of its own in the light.
Lashings of braiding and crystals surround the pendant, and a fringe, approximately 2.5" long make this a statement piece par excellence - you can be sure that there will be only one of these in the world as I will never be able to make another.
The whole pendant is approximately 4" long and the fringe adds another 2.5" to it.
The pendant is so work intensive and beautiful that the necklace needed to be simple - it is made of yellow agate beads and haematite seed beads, a couple of lost wax cast African beads and an onyx toggle clasp. The necklace is mid-chest level so that the pendant can be shown off at its best - too short and it would be tucked under the chin and may not get the visibility it deserves - this way ensures that you get maximum visibility, and so does your jewellery.
You will not need to wear any other jewellery to compete with this one, it is a tour de force on its own accord. No photograph can do justice to this piece, but I guarantee that you will love it once it goes around your neck.
