Ashley Willemain's Etsy store, Gather & Flow, held a circular moonlit mountainscape that I have been yearning to own and wear for almost a year now. After firmly placing it on my bucket list for the year and deciding to go to the mountains on vacation this summer once again, I could resist the siren song of the mountain necklace no longer.
The necklace arrived in a rustically beautiful box wrapped in a handsewn fabric strip and tied with a thin whip of leather. It took about two weeks from time of purchase to arrive. Each piece is hand sawn and hand made. No casting or short cuts here.
I adore the little hand sewn muslin pillow she created on which to lovingly lay the necklace.
This is a more delicate piece that I aim to wear fairly often. I think it would be nice for layering too. It hangs on an 18" chain that has tiny striations etched into the links to add texture.
Ashely is very easy to work with and offers layaway plans and custom creations, even if you want to use a stone you already own. Her communication is excellent. She messaged me right after I purchased to let me know when it would be mailed out. Chain length sizes can be altered too. I found the whole experience wonderfully pleasant and I am already eyeing the matching moonstone ring. And check out the mountain range and wolf moon necklaces.... stunning.
Do you enjoy the mountains?
