The Summer Long Necklace is a necklace that holds nature power. Seeds are combined with turquoise stones, pink glass beads and glass goddess. The necklace is made out of styrax seeds and the pink glass goddess is handblown in my studio.
The necklace is 97 cm long. The glass goddess body is 2,7 cm tall.
All seeds of styrax tree are hand drilled, they come from from our botanical nursery, where my husband planted the tree to atract bees. Also interesting is that the tree is the "official" source of styrax, an herbal medicine known from ancient times. Some believe its oleoresin to have been the stacte used together with frankincense, galbanum, and onycha to make Ketoret, the Tabernacle incense of the Old Testament. - James A. Duke (2007).
