Vibrant Stone: Aquamarine and Tourmaline Necklace
Organic is a word used frequently to describe Ashley’s pieces, and this rough aquamarine and tourmaline bead necklace with its gold leaf clasp in 18 karat yellow gold is no exception. In the case of Ashley’s pieces, “organic” refers to the way each piece reflects different motifs found in nature. Ashley often gleans inspiration from Mother Nature: the elegant matte hues in this piece reflect the shades of blue found in myriad bodies water, while the cut of the stones reflects the jagged peaks of mountains. Ashley truly believes that jewelry is at its loveliest when it reflects the undeniable beauty of the original artist herself: Mother Nature.
