Heady, fragrant bunches of lilac blooms that weigh down their very branches are called to mind in this necklace from Thailand's Kai Kittima. Polished chips of amethyst and peridot are joined by freeform smoky quartz stones and brilliantly faceted clear quartz globes. The double-strand necklace is completed with a clasp of fine Thai silver.
.925 Sterling silver
Kittima has survived oral cancer. She still suffers muscular weakness in her left arm from the effects of chemotherapy and radiation. In spite of this she continues to create her jewelry. "I live my life with consciousness. I do everything for the present and future, leaving the past behind. I am very happy with the things I've done. I like crafting jewelry and I am so happy with it."
