Luck of the Draw – available at 4 Ravens Gallery
Once upon a time, recently, at the base of the mountains there sat a studio. In this studio the artist was staring at a piece she was making. She could not decide what stone she should use as an accent stone. She put the stones away and worked on creating the setting. After the Amazonite was set she again sat staring at the different stones. She took pictures of each stone sitting in the setting so she could compare the different looks. Her head told her one thing, her heart said another. In the end… she went with her heart. Luck of the Draw was created bringing together the striking turquoise of Amazonite and the vibrant purple of Amethyst.
Amazonite is known for brining good luck. Amethyst is a source of power and wisdom.
