“Eel grass is home to young and old creatures of the sea, providing food and shelter. As the ocean’s nursery, eel grass anchors eggs of many species, keeping them moist and creating shade at low tide for small fry to hide from predators. Eel grass is a universal nurturer, preventing erosion, and even filtering polluted runoff.
“Nurture” features imagery of sea stars, a crab, sea snail, flounder, sea horses, and of course, eel grass. The necklace components are made of sterling silver and 14kt gold, with micro-mosaic inlays, a diamond, as well as several peridot and citrine. Each component is highly detailed front and back. The necklace is strung with multiple strands of blue and green aquamarine with a few prehnite and garnets sprinkled in.”
