:: Tinaja ::

Hidden deep within the most remote and rugged desert places are jewels...pockets of water left by rains known as tinajas.  This necklace suggests the cool green water shimmering within a natural well of stone.  

The foundation is a natural brown leather torc which clasps with a hammered S hook.  Hanging from it is a found stone pendant by Gary B. Wilson, which I have attached with a wrapped silver wire.  Next to it is a very long element of wrapped silver in a lighter gauge, holding a fragment of ancient Bactrian glass that I've been holding onto for years because it is so lovely.  It is a beautiful peridot green, fluted, with gorgeous multicolored iridescence.  Bactrian glass is over 2150 years old and comes from north central Asia, from a kingdom that was once the center of culture for a vast region.  The wire extends well below the glass fragment and ends in a drop of fused fine silver. 

Both pendants hang together perfectly and swing freely on the leather cord.  On either side of them are stationary wraps of sterling that keep them centered on the torc. 

This is a beautiful, magical and very unusual piece, full of the primitive wildness of the desert.  

SIZE:  The leather cord with silver S hook is 17 1/4" or 44 cm long.  The pendants hang 4 1/4" or 11 cm below it. 

CARE:   Wipe with a damp cloth to clean.  Buff the silver with a damp cloth to brighten if desired.
