Unbelievably exquisite!

Just when I think you can't top yourself, you DO.

The colors and the balance ... the beads you used ... everything has fallen into place as if guided by an unseen hand.

Hi! I've been enjoying your blog since last summer. This necklace is one of the most stunning pieces of jewelry I've ever seen! If I could afford it, it would be around my neck for sure! I also wanted to tell you how interesting it has been to learn the meaning behind "The 12 Days of Christmas". Thank you for making the world a more beautiful place!


Extraordinary, Deryn. This will be a treasure for a lucky woman. The meaning and your workmanship make it a beloved gift.

Denise Mares

Deryn, this piece is amazing! Every detail is symbolic and meaningful. Very special.

Wishing you peace and love during the holidays and always.

SOOOOOOOOOOO beautiful Deryn - and what a lovely way to pictorially tell the story of Mary with Jesus............very special - thank you for sharing. hugs x Keron


oh wow. this is so pretty Deryn! I am so drawn to the lovely irridescent colours. The story and meaning behind fascinates me. Wonderful, wonderful job here.


Yes, I agree with everyone, this is a gorgeous piece and a wonderful interpretation of Mary's story. Like all your pieces, I can tell you've put a lot of thought in to it. Thank you for sharing the precious story of Mary and Jesus. Happy Holidays Deryn!


being on a fixed income, i can't afford this necklace, but it is beautiful, and the thought is especially beautiful. i hope someone can afford it who will appreciate it's true meaning.


Absolutely stunning, Deryn! I think it is your best yet ~ you have certainly been perfecting your craft! I can just see Mary at Jesus feet with this alabaster jar.


Simply beautiful.

Did you know that since the days of the early church, bishops have worn amethyst signet rings because the word amethyst means "not drunk" as in "these religious folks are not drunk on wine, they are fillled with the Holy Spirit"?

Jen Crossley

How Stunning your work is amazing, how you put everything together just right.
Thanks for sharing so much


This piece is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for sharing the meaning of the 12 days of Christmas and also the Bibical passage that goes along with the alabaster jar. This necklace is so beautiful as well as the necklace you created. Merry Christmas!


Beautiful necklace!


Mary and the Alabaster Jar is one of my favorite stories in the bible. You did a wonderful job with your interpretation via stones, links, and metal. This piece is simple exquisite. xoxoxoxo
