Nova Lapis Lazuli Silver Dragonfly Necklace - A Beautiful Story
This long necklace is made of silver plated brass. The necklace has an open end, with on one end a handmade dragonfly charm and on the other end a big lapis lazuli gemstone.
Lapis lazuli makes friends everywhere. Lapis lazuli is not only wise but also makes connections easily. A gift with this deep blue gemstone is a nice way to celebrate a precious friendship. The dragonfly is your guide in times of change and transition. Sometimes it involves a literal transition, like a new job or a move. But it can also be a transition that brings you closer to yourself, that teaches you more about who you are. Wherever you go, the dragonfly tags along. She shows you that sometimes it's all about the journey.

A Beautiful Story was founded by Cathelijne Lania from the Netherlands in 2006. When she heard that a silver factory was closing down in her beloved Nepal (owned by a friend she had met whilst volunteering in Kathmandu) and inspired by her love of the country, Cathelijne quit her job working for a big multi-national and set up a collaboration with the silver factory "artisan workshops". Cathelijne worked with her friend, Nimdiki Sherpa, to set up a jewellery factory "Beads for Life" - an enterprise to empower Nepalese women . Fifty artisons from Beads for Life make the jewellery for A beautiful Story giving these talented jewellery makers the chance to be independent and to support their families. Today the company also works with a small number of producers in developing countries and is establishing new connections in Peru, Bolivia and Bangladesh.
