Art Nouveau Style Dainty Double Tendril Bronze Necklace with Blue Goldstone Bead
This gorgeous piece of necklace is perfect for those who like to wear small, delicate jewellery! The hand cast bronze piece is a lace pattern heart upside down from which a tiny blue goldstone sphere hangs down. The long shape of the pendant emphasizes the cleavage while it's still a barely prominent, fine jewellery (the pendant is 3 cm = 1.2 inches long).
The pendant hangs on a 41 cm = 16.10 inches long double wire copper cord decaorated with 4 sphere and 2 tube beads.
Despite what its name implies, there is no gold in Goldstone; in fact, Goldstone is man-made glass infused with copper particles; the additions of cobalt, manganese or chromium result in the deep, shimmery Blue Goldstone. It was invented by the Miotti family in Venice during the seventeenth century. And, because glass is made from quartz sand (silica), Goldstone has found its way into the healing community.
The sparkles of Blue Goldstone are reminiscent of stars in the night sky. Goldstone to make a wish. Blue Goldstone is a helpful aide for children who are afraid of the dark.
