Celtic Sea ~~ Cobalt Blue and Crystal Pendant Necklace
Looking over some of my recent names you'd think I'd been reading too many tales of the sea, of travels, and the open road! Close. My brother, John, is building an outrigger canoe. It's a life-long dream of his to both sail to Hawaii and build boats. As a self-employed contractor he has the freedom in his schedule, especially considering the recent San Diego rain which shuts down everything here, to finally indulge his dreams. We've been staying up late at night playing Scrabble and dreaming of the sea, water splashing the boat, the open sky, and the practical too, how to converse salt water to fresh with desalinization units. I was reminded of my brother when I named this necklace. Drawn to the Celtic pendant by my strong Scottish roots, the irresistible cobalt blue, one of my very favorite colors, and another passion of mine, faceted crystal. Celtic Sea is composed of cobalt blue cat's eye, faceted crystal, and silver wire which culminates in an antiqued silver Celtic pendant. 16" (plus 2) to the pendant. Necklace $30, Earrings, $7
Magpie Madness emerged from my love of turquoise, my search for quality jewelry at affordable prices, and my desire to create opportunities for you too. My son Ian, while gazing at rows upon rows of beads exclaimed, "Mom, I'm a magpie; I like shiny things!" It was a natural fit because he rarely stops talking. The name clicked.
