ITEM DESCRIPTION: This is my necklace honoring Novaa Ru Watson. Novaa was only 23 when his life was taken on June 12, 2021 in front of a retail store. One of Novaa’s friends, Torri Chippe said, “He was loved and liked by everyone. He was one of those people that was just good vibes and energy.” I used his good vibes and energy as an inspiration for this necklace that sits right over the heart when worn. I chose a bright stone (sea foam green Variscite) to be complimented by a bright leather cord. Pendant is sterling silver with two small tags that sit behind it representing the date of Novaa’s death and his name. Necklace length is 36”, can be slipped over your head, and sits approx in the middle of chest.
