I made this pendant with polymer clay and some gemstones that reminded me of the ocean:

Amazonite = This stone balances feminine and masculine energy. It promotes kindness and
practicality. It is an excellent stone for artists. Amazonite is know as the lucky "Hope
Stone". It will be lucky for all your hopes and dreams.

Peridot = This stone was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients who
considered it a gift from Mother Nature. Napoleon once made a gift of Peridot to
Josephine as a symbol of undying love and admiration. It is mentioned throughout
the Bible, and early Christians considered it sacred. It is a stone of lightness and
beauty. It is a protector against negative emotions.

Iolite = Ancients believed that this stone could unlock creativity in an artist. Use this
stone to discover the lost parts of self and your inner treasures. It is a stone of vision
and creative expression.

Turquoise: Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as
a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures. If given a turquoise by a loving friend,
that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune.
The turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.
Turquoise carries great wisdom of basic truth within it.

The design is done with an earthy, terra-cotta color clay. I painted it with some metallic
powders and created some beautiful patterns in the clay. After baking I gave it a glossy
finish to seal in the powders and paints.

This piece is a nice size, a definite totem statement! :)
The tail span is 3 and 3/8 inches and the height is about 2 and 1/2 inches, which does not
include the bail. The bail is silver plated, the jump ring is sterling silver.
*The braided cord is not included with the pendant.
