After so much snow and rain and dreary weather, I have decided that I am more than ready to see Winter end and to have Spring (or even Summer) back again. I am tired of grey, cold, and dismal. I want warmth and sunshine and green, leafy things. Well, I can’t do anything to speed along the changing of the seasons (as great as it would be if I could) but I can make something that makes me feel like warmer times are on their way soon.
This brings me to the Dryad, a beaded gemstone necklace made out of Fancy Jasper and Wooden Agate in gorgeous shades of brown, tan, cream, green, and gold. The lovely earth tones of the beads remind me of forests, trees, and growing things (which is why I named it the Dryad after the spirits of trees in Greek mythology).
What I love most about this piece is the colors of the gemstones. They are just so rich and warm and they can be worn with so many different things. When I was putting together the style gallery below for the Dryad, I started out focusing on earth tones (like brown and green) and neutrals (like tan, cream, taupe, etc) but the more I looked at the Dryad, the more I realized that it would look stunning with certain shades of rust and peach too! It also has a very versatile style too, going from boho chic to dressy elegance in the blink of an eye.
If you love the Dryad as much as I do, you can get yours here at Ciarrai Studios.
