Inspired by Lakes

Topaz Onyx Necklace, Semi Precious, Handmade Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver, Pendant


Magnificent faceted cut 8mm x 6mm oval-shaped Swiss Blue Topaz semi-precious gemstone, complimented by lovely 6mm x 6mm round-shaped Black Onyx semi-precious faceted gemstone. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting!
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Llyn Tryweryn, the source of the Tryweryn river which was infamously channelled into the Llyn Celyn reservoir in 1965, resulting in the small Welsh village of Capel Celyn being lost to the lake. Perhaps due to the sombre story behind these serene waters, the lake’s cool blues seem to convey a very solemn sort of beauty.
Onyx has long been prized for its enigmatic allure; it was much favoured in ancient Greece, where it was believed to be the clipped fingernails of Aphrodite, goddess of beauty.
One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Hindu literature points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom.
Attached to an 18-inch chain, this dazzling gemstone pendant will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented piece which makes the perfect gift.
Commissions welcome. Thanks for looking
