The necklace is graced by an amazing ceramic pendant from UK artist, Lisa Stevens of Sea Urchin. I paired it with an Elaine Ray ceramic lentil bead, a Winter Branches lentil bead and Blue Branches disk created by me and a Seek Wisdom connector from Green Girl Studios. The art beads are complimented by a collection of ceramic beads, sterling silver spacers, a crystal rondell and blue kyanite daggers and beads. The pewter clasp has a dogwood floral design.

Why I choose this piece - after looking through my BIG box of jewelry this one kept coming back to me. When I created it I was thinking that I wanted an icy winter feel to the necklace to remind the wearer to seek wisdom in the "winters" of our life. Those bleak times when things appear to be dark, cold and without hope. Those are the times we need wisdom to remember that there is always hope when it comes to the spirit's ability to triumph over adversity. I love that the Seek Wisdom pendant was created by Andrew's sister and I think that gives the design even more meaning for this auction.
