Amazonite and Silver Necklace
A single strand of faceted amazonite beads and sterling silver daisy beads perfectly matches the oval pendant of amazonite set in sterling silver. The subtle variations in the blue-green amazonite give this piece a fresh appeal. The ends are finished with glass seed beads and sterling silver findings, and the necklace fastens with a sterling silver toggle clasp.
Gemstone lore holds that amazonite stimulates and enhances creative expression and balances the emotions. It is called the “hope stone” because it inspires confidence and hope.

Meet the Artist: Laury Monk
Laury was introduced to the beauty of rocks and minerals in 2001 by her mentor -- who started the first rock and mineral store in Colorado. His great love and knowledge of the stones inspired Laury to start beading. She remains fascinated and inspired by Native American culture, by the stark beauty of the desert and by the amazing diversity of natural stones. Each piece is one of a kind, and incorporates the finest materials, including antique and new stones.Learn More
