Montana Mountain Majesty SOLD
These richly striated rhyolite stones brought to mind our wild and majestic Montana mountains--tall evergreens, woodland creatures, spectacular peaks, and rich soil. Rhyolite has a similar composition to granite yet with a smaller composition. It ranges in color from shades of pink to buff. Here, we see mostly shades of forest green. I decided to wire wrap the gemstones in antiqued copper wire, work in a few freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals, and some hammered antiqued copper rings. Stunning. If you're an earth-tones and browns kind of girl this is for you!
Rhyolite is said to represent change, variety and creativity. Necklace measures a full 33.5 inches.
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.
When you find the perfect piece(s), please send me an email with your contact information (make sure I'm on your accepted addresses so I do get your email) and I will send you a PayPal invoice. Be a Magpie!I ship within 24 hours of confirmed payment.
I recently added a small collection of Magpies to Etsy! So, you can shop there, too! But, if you're looking for more necklaces, especially chunkier styles, browse this blog.
