Gothic Lace is definitely one of the most beloved of my Lace designs! Every collection features a different Lace, which are hands-down my most desired designs ever. The Laces almost always sell out before any other piece. Each Lace is inspired by the theme and typically features hidden imagery. Laces are seamless, highly detailed, and always feature a stunning unique stone on the face. Gothic Lace is inspired by the traditional Victorian method of hand tatting lace. Durable laces were formed using a series of knots and loops, typically made by either a small handheld shuttle or needle. Tatting likely developed from decorative rope work and netting fashioned into jewelry created by sailors while at sea for their lovers. In metaphysical circles, knots are widely incorporated into magical workings to bind positive manifestations or to unbind negativity. Within the tiny knots of Gothic lace you will see subtle hints at spiderwebs and traditional Victorian roses.
Gothic Lace with Black Onyx & Faceted Onyx Heart has been paired with a black Onyx crystal. Black Onyx is a true stone in the chalcedony family, unlike obsidian which is a volcanic glass. According to ancient scripts, Queen Cleopatra wore a stone of pure black Onyx for its protective properties. During the mourning-wear era of the Victorian age, black Onyx became extremely popular for it’s glossy, enigmatic surface.

Charmed Ones feature charms and castings collected from small artisanal shops and are made with solid sterling silver. This rollerball necklace incorporates a set of my highly coveted miniature realistic bat wing charms.
Fringed Rollerball Necklaces feature my signature chain fringe, inspired by the fringe jewelry of the roaring 20’s. Fringe is found in two different styles; either diamond cut chain or bar chain. Each strand is held perfectly with tension so they’re never out of place! At the end of each chain is a plumb-bob with a Hematite crystal point pendulum.
Rollerball Necklaces are coupled with a sterling silver chain that is customized to your preferred length. Chains feature a .925 diamond cut. Necklaces arrive with a roller since oils are the most common use but are entirely optional. You can fill your bottles with whatever you like! Many customers have opted to use their necklaces for keepsakes, specimens, or memorials. Bottles are photographed with an inert carrier for demonstration only, essential oils are not included. Rollerball necklaces are refillable and coupled with a refill/care kit. If you would like to purchase more bottles in other sizes or colors find glass bottles here or consider adding extra crystal energy with a gemstone roller bottle here.
