Introducing Généviève...
the first Bohemian Earth piece of 2012

 When I completed this necklace, the name"Généviève" came to mind.  I think Généviève sounds elegant and graceful, which seems fitting for this multistrand statement piece.

The necklace features three strands of faceted deep red garnet.  On each strand of garnet, there is one beautifully detailed antiqued solid copper bead.  The deep red of the garnet complements the blue green turquoise rondelles that make make up the top half of the necklace.  These turquoise rondelles have a lovely earthy matrix and are accented further by eight rustic, faceted solid copper beads.  The necklace closes with a solid copper s-clasp.
This necklace will be an elegant birthday present for a Capricorn or a woman born in January.  The Copper plated pewter links, reminiscent of hearts, that connect the two parts of the necklace also make this one-of-a-kind necklace a lovely Valentine's Day gift that can be worn year round.

Garnet encourages good health, creativity, and devotion and commitment to oneself and others.  Turquoise is a powerful healing stone that can help wearers with meditation, balance, and communication. It is also a protective stone that enhances love, friendship, and loyalty.  Copper enhances non-verbal communication, gives energy for the tired and aids in grounding the restless.

The name Généviève is French with possible Germanic or Celtic origins and means "woman of the people."
