Rhodonite Mountain Woman

One of the favorite beads I have in the store are these facetted Rhodonite Rondells http://tinyurl.com/3b7exn . Once on a walk on a remote beach on Vancouver Island I came across a cave that had been created by the water from high tide. It was low tide so I walked in and sat down. It was dark at first but as my eyes adjusted to the darkness I realized the entire cavern that was 8 to 10 feet deep and about 6 feet high was made completely out of polished Rhodonite. It was amazing. These rondells with their pink color and shine remind me of that cave.

This necklace runs 30 inches and all beads are Rhodonite and solid copper with the exception of the chain which I believe is copper plated. I am hoping it will patina into a black to match the matrix in the various Rhodonite stones.

Simple Matching earrings available.

What a gorgeous piece! Lucky you to have such wonderful life experiences to draw from. I can't even imagine sitting in a cavern, much less of polished rhodonite! I can't wait to see your next masterpiece. . .
