Malachite necklace

Malachite necklace

When I was little and grew up in southern Ukraine, I used to love reading russian fairy-tales. There were some wonderful stories about the people and the landscapes of the Ural mountains, where copper and malachite are mined. My favorite was the tale of The Mistress of the Copper Mountain, about a mountain spirit that guarded its treasures. Since then, malachite has always reminded me of my childhood and those stories. So when I made this necklace, I had to give it a Russian name. :) It's called Olga.
