Handmade Sterling Silver and Lapis Lazuli Inanna Necklace
I’ve been fascinated with ancient myths and legends since I was small, and I’ve created this pendant with those stories in mind. Inanna was the Sumerian goddess of love, and was said to wear a lapis lazuli necklace wherever she went. To compliment her story, I’ve added a little hand sawn heart cut out to the reverse of this pendant, showcasing the beautiful lapis lazuli stone in the centre, as a little reminded the goddess of love herself.
This beautiful handmade sterling silver necklace features a highly polished finish, and is set with a rough lapis lazuli gemstone with golden pyrite natural sparkle. Completely formed by hand from sheet silver, this pendant is a one of a kind design, and would make a beautiful gift. Perfect to wear alone, or with other pieces from The Little Black Cat collection.
The perfect gift for birthdays, anniversaries, or as a special treat for yourself!

This beautiful highly polished one of a kind lapis lazuli necklace has been completely hand crafted from British Sterling Silver. Featuring a hand sawn textured backdrop, I’ve set this piece with a rough cut piece of lapis lazuli, which sits proud in the centre of the back plate. This stunning, natural piece of lapis lazuli is a beautiful denim blue, with golden highlights of pyrite, resembling the starry night sky. The rough surface is beautifully tactile, and is complimented by the hammered line texture surround. Finished with 3 recycled silver balls to each end of the stone, this pendant hangs from a silver ball halo hoop, and is hung from a chunky 18″ Sterling silver belcher chain via 3 soldered rings. Perfectly unique, the reverse of the pendant features a decorative hand sawn heart cut out, perfect to show off a section of the stone should the necklace turn around, along with a .925 silver mark.
This necklace is named after the Sumerian goddess of love, Inanna, who was known for wearing a lapis lazuli necklace. In ancient myths, she was seen as the bright star of the morning and evening, and the Queen of Heaven.
This piece is completely created by hand from Sterling Silver by myself, and given shape with silversmithing tools, making it as unique as you are. This is the perfect piece to gift to loved ones, or to treat yourself with!

A delightfully tactile piece to play with, the pendant is attached to the chain by a trio of fixed, hand soldered rings, giving a sturdy and long lasting finish.

This necklace is ideal for everyday wear, or special occasions. It would also make a lovely gift for Birthdays, Anniversaries, and just because we all deserve a treat sometimes.
