"Clare's Gemstone Necklace"
by Joyce Taber
“Clare’s Gemstone Necklace” of the “Inspiring Women Jewelry Collection” was inspired by Clare Brewster, a character in the novel by Nora Roberts, “The Next Always”. The focal point gemstone in this collection is the Rhodonite gemstone. Rhodonite is a soothing gemstone and is said to promote love, strength and a sense of well-being, a good match for Clare’s personality. The pink Rhodonite is part of the “honeysuckle” pink collection of gemstones.
Each piece in the “Inspiring Women Jewelry Collection” is inspired by a Nora Roberts' character, each character "inspiring" in their own right. I have strived to create pieces that are affordable, innovative and fun.
I used Rhodonite Beads in 4mm and 8mm sizes, sterling silver round beads, bead caps, silver-tone spacer beads, a “Honeysuckle” pendant, sterling silver Figaro chain, jump rings and headpins and finishing the piece, a sterling silver lobster clasp.thecottonthistle.com
