This necklace wraps around the neck  and clasps in back with a sterling silver lobster clasp. Approximately 16” from end to end.'

Aquamarine Stone Story

Aquamarine - The stone of courage 
This is an excerpt from David Whyte’s book "Consolations". 
   
"Courage is a word that tempts us to think outwardly,
to run bravely against opposing fire,
to do something under besieging circumstance,
and perhaps, above all, to be seen to do it in public, to show courage;
to be celebrated in story,
rewarded with medals,
given the accolade. 
But a look at its linguistic origins leads us in a more interior direction
and toward its original template, the old Norman French,
Coeur, or heart. 
Courage is the measure of our heartfelt participation with life,
with another, with a community, a work, a future.
To be courageous is not necessarily to go anywhere or do anything, 
except to make conscious those things we already feel deeply
and then to live through the unending vulnerabilities of those consequences.
To be courageous is to seat our feelings deeply in the body
and in the world:
to live up to and into the necessities of relationships
that often already exist,
with things we find we already care deeply about:
with a person, a future, a possibility in society,
or with an unknown
that begs us on
and always has begged us on.
Whether we stay or whether we go
- to be courageous is to stay close to the way we are made."
