The idea for this piece was forming during the time my twin daughters where completing their freshman years of college and I was still adjusting to the "empty nest".
The emotions that come with mothering and letting go filled me with anxiety and a strong need to get out of my head. I am a day dreamer by nature and on that particular day my thoughts about letting go led my "dreamer self" to the red rocks and canyons of the Southwest. Visiting the Southwest is major on my bucket list just so you know... The copper reminds me of the light of the sun bathing the red cliffs in her majestic beauty and the Amethyst is all about the beauty found deep within the earth.

My process began organically by choosing what design process I intended to use and then which rough cut chunk of amethyst best fit the design. Once I knew the materials then I set out bringing the piece to life. The copper was cut, shaped, hammered and filed. The rings also cut, hammered and filed. The jump rings and clasp were made specifically to fit the design. I chose to cold connect the prongs for an additional earthy feel. The copper was bathed in patina, polished and waxed to maintain and slow down the natural aging process of the copper. Overall, "Mountain Dream" took me a week to create from idea to completion.

Mountain Dream comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. You will be the only person on the planet to own this show stopper! Hand hammered copper prong setting holds this large piece of amethyst crystal gracefully on a substantial hand hammered copper chain that measures 20" , Pendant measures 2 1/2"
