Two Handcrafted Cardinals utilizing semi-precious gemstones decorate this beautiful necklace. The Amazing Inlaid Cardinals were hand carved by Matt Mitchell, a New Mexico Artisan and Falconer. The Cardinals blend beautifully with the Fire Agate, Black Onyx, and Sleeping Beauty Gemstones. Fire Agate is thought to be formed when hot water saturated with Silica and Iron Oxide invades cavities in rocks, which creates the interesting color patterns. Metaphysically, its energy is said to be calming, bringing safety and security. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise has been highly sought after since the Sleeping Beauty Mine closed in August 2012. It has a unique bright, sky blue color compared to other forms of Turquoise, which can be found on all continents except Antarctica. Turquoise is a birthstone for December, and it has been said to promote courage, money, love, and luck. Black Onyx is a form of Chalcedony, which the ancient Romans carved into negative relief. Onyx is a stone of protection and repels negativity. The Black Onyx matches the Swarovski Crystals and Seed Beads. This one-of-a-kind necklace is completed with Sterling Silver Elements, including a unique Decorative Toggle Clasp by Steve and Juana Jelen of Pacific Silverworks.
Earrings: These lovely earrings are included with Cardinal Rainbow. The amazing Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Fire Agate Gemstones create a lovely contrast to the black Swarovski Crystals and Seed Beads. They are completed with Sterling Silver Beads and Ear Wires.
