Crinoids and Lavastone Necklaces on Leather
Simple unisex styles, featuring my signature wrapped wire frames with complementary clasps.
This piece is a rare crinoid fossil, a type of marine creature which is millions of years old. This piece is notable, because it shows the "arms." Metaphysically, crinoid fossils enable the wearer to remain grounded in the material world, while simultaneously understanding and reaching for spiritual concepts and ideals. On a practical level this stone aids in business relationships, transactions and accomplishments. And importantly in today's world, crinoids help to release outmoded patterns and to be receptive to fresh innovations.
