Katara's Necklace by AtomicLava Katara's Necklace by AtomicLava
This is my interpretation of Katara's betrothal necklace. The pendant is made of cast resin, and I used pigments to recreate the natural swirl pattern of mother of pearl. The bail is gold plated and nickel-free. I used gold embroidery thread to fasten it to ribbon and knotted under the bail to make the attachment as invisible as possible. The ribbon itself is 18 inches long with the ends left loose as depicted on the show. The ends have been sealed so they will not fray with wearing.

I'm very pleased with the end result and I hope to make a future buyer very happy at their next con.

I don't want to be a bother, but I thought I'd check with you again - will you be making more in the future, or are you planning on stopping forever? I suppose I could settle for a lower quality version, but I'd really rather not! Hope to hear from you!

This is so beautiful! I've been searching the internet high and low and this is definitely the best Katara's necklace I have found. It would be the most perfect gift for my sister in the world - is there any chance you'll be making more in the future?

OK. So my necklace came today. IT IS AMAZING!!!! Even though i bought the resin version, it still looks like it was carved in stone, and the swirl makes it look like mother of pearl. It looks just like the necklace Katara wears in the show. Thank you so much!!! I'll post pictures tomorrow; i just got back from swim team practice and i feel like I'm about to collapse.

Hi, Atomic Lava. Sorry to be bothering you again :P.
I was just wondering when this is going to be up on eBay and if you can send me a link. Thanks.

Hey, sorry it took longer than I hoped, but I had a paper due yesterday. Here's a link.[link]

This is the last resin one I have. It is a little different than the others because I was going for a more icy look than pearl look. If it is not what you are looking for I might be making some more, but I really can't guarantee it, since my school schedule has been making me really unreliable with non-school things (sorry).

Thanks! It looks great, I'm going to buy it. I don't have an eBay account, but my dad does. I talked to him about this earlier, so no problems there. I still think that the necklace looks pearly...and that satisfies me greatly. :D I completely understand the whole school issue, because I go to school myself and am loaded with homework. OK... so just to let you know we tend to bid very late on eBay, like in the last few hours of the auction. I hope I win! GREAT JOB!!!!!!

Hi! I'm new to Deviant Art, but I've been looking around here for some time now. This necklace REALLY caught my eye, and I'm thinking about asking for it for Christmas. Do you know when you will have some of these (the resin ones, not gem quality) up for sale? Thanks, you are so talented!!! All 3 of your necklaces are BRILLIANT!!!!!!

Hey, sorry, I've been really busy with school. I have one resin one left. It is slightly different that the one posted here because of the way resin mixes. I'll put an auction up tomorrow night with a new picture to show you exactly what it looks like. I do have several shell necklaces left too, if you'd like one of those better.
