From the Ashes There is Life

A 16-inch necklace made with an orchid focal, gunmetal chain, handmade wire coils, and red howlite, coral, lava rock, riverstone, red jasper, and brecciated jasper beads.

This piece was inspired by various 2010-2011 volcanic eruptions. Volcanoes can be highly destructive, but volcanic ash greatly improves soil fertility (thus the orchid pendant) and marine volcanoes can provide a base for coral growth and atolls (represented by the coral beads).
