Although these two pieces of Lapis come in such different shapes and colors, they create such a beautiful look when they're paired together with hand crocheted lace in our new seasonal color Periwinkle. The chain on this necklace is a little longer (adjustable 17"-20") so it's the perfect pendant to wear over something with a higher neck or as a long necklace layered with something shorter.
The colors in this collection reflect the transition from cold, gloomy winter to warm, bright spring. Lapis has long been loved for its intense deep blue color. Wealthy Renaissance painters used paint that was made with Lapis to create rich tones in their compositions. Ancient Egyptians believed Lapis to provide protection and used it in some burial masks to protect someone moving into the next life.
