When I accepted the challenge of designing my first decidedly masculine necklace, I thought of a long strand of brown turquoise that I'd been unable to successfully incorporate into any previous designs. I thought the beads were beautiful, but I was at a design stalemate. So, thanks to a friendly suggestion, "Liam" was born.
I've named this necklace Liam, an Irish name meaning "strong-willed warrior," mostly because I've liked the name for some time, but I also think the name suits the necklace's energetic properties. Liam is 21 3/8" and features brown mosaic turquoise, brown goldstone, and an antiqued copper lobster clasp. I've loved copper-rich goldstone since I discovered it about six years ago in Albuquerque. Goldstone is known for its ability to clear one's chakras, to help one find courage and strength, and to fill one with light and love (source here). And because it is copper-rich, goldstone will naturally help ground a restless spirit and help enhance non-verbal communication (source here).
