 An oblong white stone, wrapped in a simple silver colored cage, on a sterling chain, with some clear quartz rounds, mother of pearl rounds, and silver rounds forming a simple brief break in the chain about two inches up from the pendant.

Anyone familiar with The Temple Of The Twelve will know who I made this necklace for. For anyone who doesn't-The Temple Of The Twelve is a fairy tale book series for children, equally usable by adults, which can either simply be a fairy tale or one that can aid in personal and spiritual growth.

The Lady White is the Color of innocence and of snow, amongst many other things. I decided not long ago to attempt work with the Temple Of The Twelve, and while I did not complete my first year, I DID end with Lady White. I made this for her-a necklace of White, for the White Lady, with Silver for her Silver husband, lord of intuition and magic. The pendant itself, an oblong stone approximately an inch and a half in length, is of a stone unknown to me, but chosen for it's frosty simplicity. The only few other stones chosen were clear quartz and mother of pearl-the crystalline nature of ice combined with the pearlescent beauty of snow, to my eyes. The silver chain-and the silver-colored wrapping wire-was a simple and fitting accentuation, as in this necklace I desired simple elegance and white chain is surprisingly hard to come by. It just so happens that Lady White and Lord Silver are spouses, in this fairy tale, so I thought it much more fitting to choose his color than gold as the single chain connecting her stones. The clasp, though you can't see it in this shot, is a sterling swivel lobster clasp: again, simple.

This necklace, however, is compatible to many things. Like White and her color, it's adaptable to accent or be accented by any other color in existence. Whether or not anyone who desires any necklace of this style entertains the fairy tale in which Lady White resides, I feel that it does her and her color no dishonor for a simple brilliance like this to be seen around any neck in any circle. This is one of the few pieces I feel I can recreate exactly, should it be desired. Of course, I can also switch up the stones as desired. Like I said, white complements anything, and anything complements white, after all.
