Shadow Rose, were the words that struck me as I was creating this piece. At first I took it as an obvious name to cross my mind, given the moody dark tones in this piece of floral finery, but at the back of my mind something whispered; “no you’ve heard this before.” The more I thought about it, the more I realized how familiar it was. It turns out it’s from a poem I wrote in my moody, introspective, teenage years, lol :). I dug out one of many old notebooks, filled with bits of songs, poetry, and other musings only those with the luxury of way too much time on their hands can indulge in! Thus the Shadow Rose necklace was born. A gorgeous long, Austrian crystal and enamel studded, gunmetal tone pendant, with tiny faceted Swarovski crystal drops, and a hematite hued, Czech glass teardrop, is suspended from fine black metal chain, with scattered Czech hematite hued crystals, that add a modern edge to to this dusky toned showstopper! The chain portion of the necklace measures 16” inches in length with a 4” inch drop pendant, perfect for just the right dip towards the décolletage. Wear this as proof that beauty can bloom forth and exist even in the midst of darkness.
