“SilKIN” is my favorite collection of adornments to date.

Prasiolite is a green variety of Quartz Crystal.. the lively, verdant coloration discloses her powerful, healing energy. Energies of the earth, traveling straight to the Heart.. allowing us to harness that vital force in our own healing, and spiritual elevation.

The piece is designed to be worn long, or easily adjusted for a higher-sitting necklace. This piece will even wrap twice around the neck, and can be worn on the wrist as well. These are excellent layering choices, sitting beautifully with other stones or plain chain, giving a fun play of textures.
