BLUEBERRY LAPIS PENDANT
Sterling silver and lapis pendant on an 18" silver chain with an easy to attach lobster clasp.
Artist statement: Here in Alaska, one of our favorite past times is berry picking, and people take blueberry picking very seriously. Arriving home with our buckets full, we have to decide what to do with our haul. One of my favorite ways to preserve them is to make a sweet treat of blueberry liquor. It is time-consuming (because the seeds are so small and difficult to strain) but the reward is a tart-sweet-liqueur that can bring back the long slow days of summer, especially in the middle of winter.
