Wish upon the luckiest star and this magnificent moon necklace by Melissa of Rainwater Studios may become yours. The hammered copper wire has been twisted into a tear drop shape to frame a sliced agate stone and a Swarovski chandelier crystal. Melissa found the vintage crystal on a treasure hunt. The slight imperfections visible within its facets give the piece an extra touch of character. The wondrously wire wrapped pendant comes with a silky suede cord that measures 22 inches.
Each piece Melissa dreams into being is just as unique and enchanted as this handmade prize. She has been creating jewelry inspired by different time periods since she began her theater career at 11 years old. A very crafty, ingenious group of theater gurus helped evoke her artistic passion. Historic times of turmoil, from Tudor to Elizabethan to Etruscan, especially fascinate her. Melissa uses her love of history, vintage jewelry materials and precious stones to craft treasures that mesmerize the eye and mind.
