“SilKIN” is my favorite collection of adornments to date.
Every inch of these talismans has been pored over, and imbued with intention, care, and connection to the natural world. I believe there is such a portal to the world of spirit - through the lens of nature.
Himalayan Pink Quartz, also known as Samadhi Quartz, carries within it the soaring vibration of those sacred mountains and land. It is a wonderful ally for deepening our spiritual practice, however there is a gentleness present unlike with some other high-vibrational stones. It is especially sweet for heart-healing and self-care centered work.
The cording began life as recycled sari silk - cut into strips, prepared for natural dye, and in this case, dipped into a bath of sumptuous Black Walnut extract. It was then dipped into iron water for this ombré effect. After the lengthy dye process, I twisted the silk into cording - creating a secure yet adjustable closure and a tassel-like finish.
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.
