Kyanite! I wonder if I have ever seen a more intensely beautiful stone than a blue kyanite. It is iridescent! It is intense! It is endowed with a depth of color that is hard to imagine outside of a winter sky over the mountains of Colorado or the deepest part of the bluest ocean. I have played a bit with the design in this piece, enjoying the opportunity to allow the gemstones to mingle with the exotic echoes of the sea in the form of blue pearls. Smaller than the stones, irregular in shape, they offer a stunning contrast and a delightful textural quality to the overall look of the design. I have added two handmade, sterling silver leaf designs at the end of two strands of stone and pearl, in the front of the necklace. I have joined the two strands together three quarters of the way down the strands to give the piece the look of a river that meets a crossing and flows in two separate directions. A single, swirled, sterling silver bead holds the strands together. Use your imagination with this design and you will find there are a number of ways it can be worn. Beautiful, versatile and blue!!!
