Woodland Rosarita Necklace

Regular price $275.00 Sale price $255.00

This Collectors Rosarita Necklace is a throwback to my Beloved Woodland Collection. It is a direct reflection of my happy place, and time spent in the woods. This Rosarita necklace embodies the feelings of freedom and elegance you receive frolicking through the trees, and ferns. It makes room for the sweet day dreams of spring and resting upon a patch of moss, the cool Fall breeze kissing your face, or a crisp frosty Winter morning. 

Have you ever heard of this brilliant red stone called Rosarita? In the 1940's the price of gold spiked, and miners began revisiting old sites. They would build kilns over pits and smelt the gold filled sand to get every last bit. Rosarita or gold slag, is a by-product from this process. The glass like material(silica+gold) would run off mountains and solidify into boulders at the bottom. This refining process was only used for 5 years, as it was not the most effective method. The deep red color comes from the gold infusing with the glass. I love this history nugget and stunning Collectors piece. 

This necklace was handcrafted using sterling silver and Rosarita. The patina should be maintained with a regular, light polishing. The Pendant hangs from a sterling silver 22 inch Snake Chain.

*The jewelry should be treated like a one of a kind, handcrafted piece of art. That means no water, no rough housing and no chemicals!
