Necklaces from Metalicious add something striking to your ensemble with pieces for special occasions as well as ones for everyday wear. Whether you’re looking for something bezel-set or an eye-catching pendant, our handmade necklaces are elegant and undoubtedly unique. All pieces make great gift ideas for someone you love dearly and are stunning additions to your jewelry collection.
The Wisteria pendant is bezel set with a 6mm cushion London Blue Topaz and 2 2mm round Swiss Blue Topaz. The vines are entwined around the gemstone, they are one of the hallmarks of my designs. The swirls and twirls become tiny sculptures that intertwine around your body. My jewelry is made to grow with you in life.
Historically, Wisteria symbolizes long-life and immortality. The abundance of the Wisteria flowering vine also signifies our own expanding consciousness and creativity. It is also said to represent wisdom, which is also one of the properties of blue topaz-- the gemstone I chose for this collection.
Bohemian Vines grew from the place in my heart with deep roots to the earth combined with the dreamy swirling ether of the sky. Vines represent strength, determination, endurance and progress over time.
Blue Topaz help us to communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit and we can speak our personal truth out into the world.
Read about why I chose Wisteria for this collection.
I'm always inspired by other artists and in dreaming up this collection I found this beautiful sonnet by Pablo Neruda:
Morning (Love Sonnet XXVII), by Pablo Neruda
Naked you are simple as one of your hands;
Smooth, earthy, small, transparent, round.
You've moon-lines, apple pathways
Naked you are slender as a naked grain of wheat.
Naked you are blue as a night in Cuba;
You've vines and stars in your hair.
Naked you are spacious and yellow
As summer in a golden church.
Naked you are tiny as one of your nails;
Curved, subtle, rosy, till the day is born
And you withdraw to the underground world.
As if down a long tunnel of clothing and of chores;
Your clear light dims, gets dressed, drops its leaves,
And becomes a naked hand again.
