:: Deep Memory ::

Definitely a “statement” necklace, the stone pendant you see here is made of Outback Oolite from Australia. Oolite is formed out of countless spherical concretions which give it its spotted appearance when cut and polished. The Outback Oolite is the loveliest I’ve seen because of its symphony of soft, neutral browns, greys and creams. This pendant was created by Gary Wilson in Tucson, and while it is quite large it is also very flat and thin, thus lightening its weight. Both sides are equally lovely. Gary has specialized in finding many unique stones over the years but I think this oolite is my favorite of them all. It was only available on the market for a short time and he has been unable to find any more.

I very much enjoy finding just the right beads to harmonize with a pendant and am very pleased with those I paired with the oolite. They are a combination of picture jasper, pyrite crystals and cut beads, vintage brass from Orissa, India, Yoruba granulated brass from Africa, and a great variety of brass discs and seed beads. They were chosen because of their harmonizing color and how their shapes and textures echo the spots on the pendant. The large bead just above it is handmade wood fired ceramic.

The necklace is strung on professional grade 49 strand Beadalon beading wire, and was designed in a shorter length for greater comfort in wearing, and to protect the stone pendant. When it is worn it will fall just over or above your heart…a soft, warm energy. A hammered brass S hook serves as a closure.

SIZE: The strand of beads is 19 1/2” long. The pendant measures 1 /8” x 3 1/4” x 1/4”.

CARE:  Rinse in cool water to clean or wipe with a soft, damp cloth.

PRESENTATION: This necklace will come to you beautifully giftwrapped in an earth-friendly and recycled gift box.  Please see the Shop Policies below for details.
