About this design:

A beautiful pale blue Larimar pendant started this off! I love the sea, as you know! Larimar is found only in the Dominican Republic. It means a stone of "answers from the sea of consciousness." The blue color of the larimar reflects the "sea" of all consciousness, which gives freedom from self-imposed limitations and a sense of peace in finding truth. Then I thought the other bead colours went nicely together! I added leather thong so I could wear it at different lengths with different clothes. (Also added 2 pink tourmaline, my fav stones!)


Larimar, pink Tourmaline rondelles, Larimar Blue Crazy Lace rondells, Beryl Morganite pink rondelles (as they are a bit more pink than rose quartz!), Angel skin freshwater pearls, Aquamarine faceted oval tubes, silver end pieces on the leather.

    Very pretty! I love larimar too! I made a necklace with larimar and blue topaz for myself a couple years ago and it’s one of my favorite pieces. You picked the perfect accent stones to go with the stunning pendant!

    This is so pretty and the colors are perfect together. I especially like the two pink tourmaline stones you added they give it a little punch.

    This is really lovely. I too love larimar. I was curious to know the length as I didn’t see a clasp so assumed you can slide it over your head.

    This is just gorgeous!!!! I LOVE Larimar and I have a small hoarded stash. :) Last time I was in Key West I bought the most gorgeous Larimar pendant but haven’t hung it on anything yet. You have inspired me to design around it! :)
