Sky Onyx Necklace with Unique Andean Wire Work With Braid and Matching Bracelet
This set is rare and I grabbed it up quick. The necklace has a beautiful, round Sky Agate that looks as a faint continent floating in the sky blue. The bracelet also has a beautiful round Sky Agate. Both pieces are designed by a street artist here in San Blas named Quelo. I've included a photo of him in the description here as he was working on this piece when I bought it. Otherwise, I'm sure it would have been gone.
Both are made with typical andean alpaca silver wire work designs that honor mother earth and the sky god via the Sky onyx.
Comes with earrings and I'll try to find them in sky onyx, but may have to find another similar blue.
Spondylus Purple Shell Necklace With Graduated Point Design
I have been looking for the rare purple Spondylus shell in jewelry and I found it in this amazing piece. Wow...stunning and beautifully executed with graduated sizes of the "spike" design. This is really a special piece.
Sky Onyx Alpaca Silver Wire Work Pendant With Floral Motif
I had this amazing pendant fabricated from a stone I found at Claudio's shop. This Sky Onyx Alpaca Silver Wire Work Pendant With Floral Motif is unique and stunning. Does not come with chain.
Spondylus Necklace With Clasp (Orange & Purple)
I've been looking high and low for more necklaces made of this shell. This beautiful Spondylus Necklace With Clasp has the Orange & Purple colors that the Inca so treasured. I will be stringing this on bead wire and putting a silver clasp on it before you get it. Right now it's just strung on fishing wire. Will come with matching earrings.

Sky Onyx Sun Pendant in Brass (No Chain)
This amazing Sky Onyx Sun Pendant is made with golden Brass and is unique as I haven't found another one made with brass. It does not include a chain. It radiates different colors in different lighting situations. It looks like it may have a crack in it, but that's just part of the stone.
Spondylus Shell (Orange) Large Sun Pendant on Long Alpaca Silver Chain
This amazing teardrop shaped Spondylus shell pendant is embedded in alpaca silver to resemble the sun. It's a large pendant and it on a Long Alpaca Silver Chain.
