About Lunachia: Chia is the goddess of the moon in Colombian mythology. She represents the female and all that is beautiful, brilliant and honorable. Each piece of jewelry is crafted with awareness and love. Designer Monica Martin, originally from California and now living in here in Wellington, decided to limit exact designs because she believes a woman deserves something that is uniquely special and just for her. Each piece comes with the story of a woman who has impacted the world in some way. Some of these women are distinguished figures in history, and some are our mothers, grandmothers, teachers, friends. Every woman has a special and powerful story to tell. Faceted pale blue amazonite teardrops are hugged by handcrafted hammered gold filled scrolls which are wrapped with faceted carnelian beads.

Edgy elegance best describes these pretty dangles. A hammered gold filled loop frames a faceted black agate teardrop. Antiqued brass chain cascades down onto a pale blue amazonite teardrop.
