Britt’s Pick: Susan Wheeler’s Sunrise Necklace



The bright spot in any collection

The sun will continue to rise. The cheerful disposition of Susan Wheelers Sunrise necklace was the draw for me initially, but in light of recent matters, it represents more than just a happy feeling. With its carved fire opal crystals and citrine (the latter carved by the fabulous John Dyer), it’s fiery and tough, graceful and bright—a symbol of strength for those who could really use some right now. But the piece is really for anyone and everyone: a major item of interest thanks to its color, skillful stonework, and golden aura. Ideal for a November-birthday gift—its center citrine is the stone of the month—or a holiday present—to give the wearer warm thoughts throughout the coldest season—it’s the prettiest way to say to someone, “You are my sunshine.”
