American flag angel wing cowgirl necklace. Dark blue lapis lazuli and red coral make up this cowgirl statement necklace with a large angel wing patriotic pendant. I used 12mm lapis smooth round beads and 30mm lapis teardrops along with rustic red bamboo coral 14-15mm wheels for a dramatic look. All of the beads are separated with Tibetan silver bead caps and 5mm smooth rounds. I also included 20mm ornate hollow beads to give this necklace more distinction. The patriotic flag pendant is 2 5/8 inches long with the bail and 2 1/4 inches at the widest point. This is a magnetic pendant and can be removed to wear the necklace without it. The matching earrings are about 1 3/8 inches long. The length of the necklace is 20 1/4 inches and it is finished with a large silver plated heart lobster clasp. The necklace is perfect for that rodeo weekend.

Lapis Lazuli is a luminous, deep blue gemstone, sometimes colored with a hint of violet and gold speckles! It is a powerful stone of wisdom that strengthens a person's expression and intuition, and promotes tranquility. The awareness it imparts aids in accessing ancient knowledge and is also used as a protection stone. In ancient Egypt lapis lazuli was a favorite stone for amulets and ornaments such as scarabs; it was also used by the Assyrians and Babylonians for seals. Lapis jewelry has been found at excavations of the Predynastic Egyptian site Naqada (3300–3100 BC), and powdered lapis was used as eyeshadow by Cleopatra. At the end of the Middle Ages, lapis lazuli began to be exported to Europe, where it was ground into powder and made into ultramarine, the finest and most expensive of all blue pigments. It was used by the most important artists of the Renaissance and Baroque, including Masaccio, Perugino, Titian and Vermeer.
The color of coral can vary from white to black, but the most valued colors are pink and red. It is associated with Venus and Neptune and promotes love and harmony. It is also useful in clearing negative energies and providing protection.
