Blue Ridge Beauty
Imagine the perfect, early morning stillness in the Appalachian Mountains. Rolling ridges extend out to the horizon, wrapped in mist, and the carpet of pine needles perfumes the air as you walk. On the forest floor you spot one of nature's gems: a tiny, perfect pinecone.
Jewelry artist Nancy Nelson celebrates that woodland symbol of rebirth and enlightenment in this transcendent necklace. The brass pendant, with its painted blue patina, is hand cast from an actual, delicate pinecone collected from Swallow Falls State Park in Maryland. It's suspended from a delicate 14k gold filled chain with alternating, textured links. Pendant has been finished with a clear sealer to keep its color perpetually fresh. Handmade in Maryland.
