Big Rock Candy Mountain SOLD

If you've been following my blog for awhile you'll probably deduce that one of my favorite stones is genuine clear rock crystal. It appears in numerous projects. Another favorite of mine is the Coen brothers movie, Oh Brother Where Art Thou, based on Homer's poem, the Odyssey. This film ties in my appreciation for southern hillbilly and gospel music, 1930's culture, and some downright hilarious movie lines. The acting is supurb. As I was creating this necklace, one of the songs from the film, Big Rock Candy Mountain popped into my mind. To me, Rock Crystal is reminiscent of rock candy, and in this piece, I've incorporated a collection of colorful Swarovski crystals which are reflected in the rock crystal--tangerine orange, turquoise blue, light grape, golden sunshine...The final product is right at 16 inches long (with a 2 inch extender chain), and hugs the neck. Coordinating earrings reflect this dazzling duo. So, if you haven't worn rock crystal yet, hop on the wagon!
