The Secret Ruby Necklace
This piece is loaded with precious stones and antique beads. We'll start at the back, with the brilliant red antique African trade beads. I am in love with these. Then we'll move forward to the smoky quartz Tibetan double-terminated beads. I'm absolutely enthralled with these and have been using them a lot in my work lately, as they have wonderful protective powers and are said to be master healers.
Then there are two beautiful chunks of rough ruby, and moving forward from that are two magical crystal ball lodolite orbs.
The main attraction is the focal. It is a rough ruby, but it holds a secret. The top portion of it has been polished in a very specific way that makes a star effect, with chatoyant light flashing and moving within the stone. The necklace length is quite long so that you can hold the Ruby and look at the secret surface at will. If it was a choker, it would be hidden all the time. This way you can look, and you can share your secret with others if you choose to.
