I know exactly when I fell in love with the purple & dark as a young marine biology student in Bermuda in 1991!
Nothing will prepare you for the riot of in the purple-blue spectrum than diving in the nutrient-poor (super blue) waters of the Sargasso Sea. So here I am 30 years later still recreating one of the best combinations nature can throw at you!
A beautiful silver focal bead, hand-cast in the design of the traditional "Baule sun" from the Ivory Coast just draws your eyes in. Increasingly difficult to find, Baule tribal beads are some of the most unique casted beads from West Africa.
For me this necklace comes alive through the oceanic mix and the rawness of some of the stones juxtaposed with the most delicate faceting ( just check out the faceting of the central Amethyst in the earrings!).s
The necklace is actually a transformer - it can be worn as a double shortie or long ( please see more images in the comment section).
Like all our pieces, it is handcrafted with love and care in our studio near Byron Bay. These eclectic limited-edition statement earrings are made from the following semi-precious stones and findings:
- Sea Sediment Jasper from Hong Kong
- Crazy Lace Agate from Mexico
- Amethyst from Russia

- Agates from Brazil

- Silver-plated hand-cast Baule pendant from Ivory Coast
- Set into a silver-plated base from Istanbul and Seoul
- 1/10 limited edition
- full length: 62 cm
The Quiet Purple & Deep Blue Wave Statement Necklace will be beautifully gift-wrapped and ready as an exceptional gift for yourself or an unexpected gift for someone special. We to make each piece as closely as possible to the one shown in the image. However, since we are working with natural stones, each piece is a little bit different and that's just the way we like it.
