What I love about working with stones is that holding one, is holding time in your hands. The eons of wind and weather, seasons coming and going, time moving ever forward, formed these beautiful gifts from nature. And I present to you, in this pendant necklace, a spectacular gift from nature, a cut slice of a nautilus shell fossil, fashioned in silver with a single, amethyst stone sparkling at the bottom of two graceful, silver arms that come together, as though holding the stone with a sense of reverence. I have placed the nautilus pendant on a beautiful, moderately heavy, sterling silver chain and to echo the origins of the shell, finished the piece with a splendid, sterling silver toggle, decorated delicately, with a star fish design. There is only one of these treasures and somebody will feel the energy of time and tides, each time they wear this amazing piece of jewelry. Length: (To end of pendant) 17 1/2"
