About this design:

The name "Growth" comes from the process of moving beyond ones' expectations and sometimes self imposed limitations. This piece is a new direction for me.


Green Line Quartz, Poppy Jasper, Red Silver Leaf, Riverstone, antique brass corrugated saucers and chain

    Debbi, this is absoluting stunning!
    Is Christine rubbing off on you? Just a little?!

    What I love is that even though it is definitely an “in your face” piece, it really is still true to your personal design style.

    And you used 3 strings… representing
    Three: The spiritual meaning of number Three deals with magic, intuition, fecundity, and advantage. The number Three invokes expression, versatility, and pure joy of creativity. Three is also a time identifier as it represents Past, Present and Future. Consecutive Threes in your life may symbolize the need to express yourself creatively, or consider your present directional path in relation to past events and future goals. Three may also represent promising new adventures, and assurance of cooperation from others whom you may require help. Three typically symbolizes reward and success in most undertakings.

    Crystal Chick, that is fascinating! I hope Debbi hurries back to read this — she may not have even been aware that her subconscious led her to design her necklace this way. :D

    Thank you all for your kind words and comments, they are truly appreciated. It’s nice to have this kind of feedback to keep me moving forward in different directions and hopefully, growing in creativity as a designer.
    Crystal Chick, the information you posted is not only fascinating but quite appropriate for where I am right now in my life’s journey. It just so happens my favorite number has always been the number 3! Thank you for taking the time to write that for me.
    Thanks again!

    This is a lovely piece and I do not know your style as of yet. In designing odd numbers are a far more appealing design to the eye rather than even numbers. Same goes with something with shape rather than a straight line. A straight line is not boring if various size is added to the straight line. It is a visual candy to the eye. I am loving the beads and colors added to the necklace it is an earthy appeal. Love it.
