The Sea of Serenity Necklace comes from Apis Atelier, a South African brand created by Nicola Hemmes in her Cape Town studio where she makes everything by hand. Inspired by nature, her travels, ancient mythology and the ocean, mementos found are born as the bones for this tactile jewellery line. Apis (meaning "bee" in Latin) uses old-world techniques to create imperfect modern heirlooms that engage the body and soul. This ancient bronze handmade light chain necklace with a coral link is inspired by the lunar Mare Serenitatis (Sea of Serenity): a large, dark, region of the moon formed from molten rock by ancient volcanic eruptions. They were called mare, Latin for "sea", by early astronomers who mistook them for actual seas. The names of Maria refer to states of mind, this one being serenity. Wear for a sense of calm. Colour: metallic
