New Design in the Breastplate of Aaron Series

Last week I listed several new pieces listed at my Etsy shop, Heavenly City Jewelry!

This first one was more than a year in the making: I developed this idea as the second in a series  highlighting the precious gemstones in the Breastplate of Aaron, Exodus 28:17-22. The plan is to eventually design a piece for each of the gemstones:

Carnelian, Emerald, Topaz, Carbuncle, Sapphire, Beryl, Jacinth, Agate, Amethyst, Chrysolite, Onyx, and Jasper.
The first one I made in 2012 and it was made of Picasso jasper, it was stunning, and it has been sold. The second one is this, the beryl:

The pendant is a faceted genuine blue beryl teardrop hand-wrapped with sterling silver wire. All beads are genuine blue beryl and all findings are Sterling silver. Photographs do not really capture the luminous quality of these translucent stones; the pale blue light they transmit is simply breathtaking. $120.00.
