The Cancer Necklace | Lapis Lazuli and Raw Brass Lariat
It's your time, Cancer! For this season, I'm pleased to reveal a lapis lazuli and raw brass necklace inspired by the malleable, sensitive, and protective nature of this sign. See below for a full description!
◄Materials: raw brass, lapis lazuli
◄Length: Shorter ~ 29” / 72.5 cm; Longer ~ 32” / 81.5 cm. Pictured here are Adrienne (5”2 / 157 cm) and Usman (5”9 / 175 cm) in the Shorter version. Taller folks may want to consider ordering the Longer version. In both versions, the style is adjustable from choker to mid-chest as the clasp can slide.
This piece features a lariat-style clasp that allows you to slide the length of the necklace to whatever fits the occasion. The blue lapis lazuli stones - like the sky speckled with clouds and stars, or rough currents - have long been considered a heavenly stone, fit for dreamers and mystics like you who possess a unique ability to empathize and understand what's underneath the surface of the water. Cancer, you seek a safe refuge for your sensitive nature, so that's why I've included a thick hoop for protection and a spear at the end of this piece.
I also want to acknowlege my supporters’ suggestions that helped me make this piece. I'm so grateful for their input. See the quotes below for their ideas:
"Like really beautiful but can also be used as a weapon"
"Something that looks like tears"
"Malleable / cloudy / changing like water
Porous and intuitive bordering psychic abilities"
