“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.
Sapphire has long since been associated with royalty, nobility, power, romance, and faith. It is one of the four precious gemstones, and highly treasured throughout human history. Pink Sapphire works especially well with the heart chakra - bringing a gentle, loving energy into one’s life.
The cording began life as recycled sari silk - cut into strips, prepared for natural dye, and in this case, dipped into Sumac berry infusion with mottling of iron gray. After the lengthy dye process, I twisted the silk into cording - creating a secure yet adjustable closure with a tassel-like finish.
The piece is designed to be worn either as a necklace, or wrapped around the wrist as a stunning bracelet. These are excellent layering choices, sitting beautifully with other stones or plain chain, giving a fun play of textures.
