The Night Blooming Jasmine Necklace (OOAK)
This listing is for a ONE OF A KIND necklace from the Magic of the Swamp - LIGHT Collection.
This necklace is my tribute to "Night Blooming Jasmine".
There is no aroma more magical, or more linked to New Orleans for me, than Night Blooming Jasmine. It is absolutely the most intoxicating smell. The cute little white star shaped blossoms that only appear after the sun goes down, and are gone by morning... well, this plant is my spirit plant.
This all sterling silver necklace showcases a beautiful piece of what I believe is moss agate, but in a shade I've never seen in person before. It has the often seen cloudy white, and translucent appearance, but just has one small cluster of yellow. I've set it in a scalloped bezel, surrounded in a crown of beaded wire, underneath it three hand cut jasmine flowers and two jasmine leaves. Cut out from the back is a crescent moon, both to honor the Crescent City of New Orleans, as well as Night Blooming Jasmine's nocturnal nature. When held to the light the moon can be seen. A light layer of patina has been added to heighten the contrast of this piece, it was given a cypress oil and wax coating to help keep it in place and to satisfy the senses of smells from the swamp.
DetailsThe pendant measures 1 1/4" across at the widest point, and 1 3/4" tall from the center top of the hoop, to the base of the pendant.
It hangs on an 18" sterling silver chain.
