Bless the mercies that allow me to stumble across such talented artists with unique perspectives and style. Isn't this Dawning Forest necklace a splendid, pretty thing? An elegantly carved piece of wood is flanked on one side by pale pink moonstone, all strung along a really different-looking sterling silver chain. Moonstone graces the clasp in back as well. It seems, according to the description, that this necklace was inspired by a forest at sunrise. Just $29.50 from The Lotus Collection.
I must say, everything at Lotus Collection is really lovely, but of course, since it's all made with natural materials, primarily semiprecious stones, you shouldn't be surprised by my affection for what's going on here. From the artistic, like Dawning Forest, to the traditional, like this Chinese Porcelain necklace, you'll find something for you or someone else to love — and there's plenty for the lover of fun, modern jewelry, too.
Artist Jean Chen will replicate any of her work in gold if that's your metal of choice. If you'd like to see her and her work in person, be sure to head over to the Etsy Dallas Trunk Show at the Southside Lofts December 8!
