Here is a special little miniature terrarium necklace, even if I do say so myself! I made this piece by surrounding a rich purple raw Amethyst crystal with real specimens of Irish lichen before preserving them inside a beautiful glass orb.
This incredibly realistic, tiny nature-scape really reminds me of the mountainsides of Kerry, where I used to spend many hours in the heath, hunting for tiny quartz and amethyst crystals as a child. This sparkly mini terrarium is the perfect pocket-sized oasis of calm ,and would be such a wonderful gift for any nature lovers or mountain girls (like me!) living far away from home, or indeed for anyone with an appreciate for unique and unusual jewellery.
As each necklace is hand crafted with real plants and raw Amethyst points, every piece is slightly different and so, unique. This pendant is suspended on a beautiful quality bronze rolo chain, which is available in 3 lengths. All the findings are nickel-free bronze.
While every care has been taken to ensure the longevity of this piece, do try to keep it away from water.
The pieces at Ruby Robin are designed to allow the quiet beauty of nature to shine, to stir the imagination, inspire wonder and encapsulate a microcosm of long forgotten memories. I make my jewellery using a range of strange and beautiful curiosities, found in the woods and on the mountain sides, on the windswept beaches and wild meadows.
