This is a one-of-a-kind necklace which fuses the past and the present together. Its base is a Quahog shell (the kind Native Americans used to make wampum) which I found on a beach in Delaware. The cobalt blue glass I found in a beach in Brooklyn.  The brass plate says "Now > Past," which reminds you to stay in the present moment. It's a phrase that also helps you "read" the design -- the left hand side of the bail (which connects the necklace to the chain) is simple, whereas the right hand side is intricate woven wire with two tiny glass beads. The past is much more simple in our minds than the complex present. 

It's about 15 inches long in total, but I can adjust the length of the chain to anything you'd prefer.

I carefully riveted the glass to the shell. It's secure, but you can also change the orientation of the glass if you'd like.  I painstakingly wove a pattern of tiny glass beads connecting the shell/glass assembly to the rest of the necklace.  It's work that requires a lot of concentration, and a commitment to stay in the present moment. 

The back of the necklace is just as beautiful as the front. It will arrive to you in a gift box, ready to treasure.
