(Irish, Scottish) [KLEE-nah] Goddess of beauty and the otherworld. A Tuatha sea and Otherworld Goddess who often took the form of a sea bird and, as such, symbolized the Celtic afterlife. As the ruler of the waves, she was believed to be embodied in every ninth one which broke on shore. This wave was believed to break higher and stronger than the others.

The beads in this watery deep necklace are Mother of pearl beads resembling the colors of the ocean. I shaped segments in copper and used coiling, netting and wrapping techniques. It measures approximately 18-20 inches in length.
