A Medieval woodcut of a snail riding a dragon (?) is the focal point of this handcrafted, one of a kind two-sided necklace.
Found image under amethyst or garnet Stained Glass, set within a highly detailed gothic arch clay frame, adorned with a complementing ametrine bead. The back has a reliquary like fragment of the word "RISE" set under a rough ametrine stone, glowing with gold leaf flakes.
Hand painted with an antiqued gold finish. Pendant is just under @ 7/8 of an inch at widest, @ 1 7/8 inches long including bead.
Necklace measures @ 20 1/2 inches long but can be worn shorter. (length can be adjusted upon request when purchased.)
Parrish Relics are one of a kind and handmade in my one-woman jewelry studio at Frog Hollow. Time and care is spent collecting tiny images that I find inspiring and captivating ~ Clay frames are formed around glass to pay tribute to the beautiful artwork they celebrate! Alchemically hand painted to match the metal components in the chains and findings, they become unique adornments that start conversations and are joyful to wear.
All Amulets are shipped out to you beautifully gift packaged in an organza drawstring bag, along with a care sheet and my favorite mossy tissue paper.
