This necklace was inspired by Jane’s memories of fishing trips to the Great Barrier Reef, Australia and a lagoon called Yellow Patch on Curtis Island (a massive yellow-orange sand-dune).

Gold South Sea pearls capture the polished yet untouched beauty of it all and the ferocity of a powerful electrical storm and its sudden onslaught as it approached the island.

Each Jane Magon piece is hand crafted and unique.

Price on Application

My husband and I went on many fishing trips to the reefs off the central coast of Queensland, Australia.

In 2005, we took his high-powered off-shore fishing boat up to the northern end of Curtis Island to fish and put our mud crab pots into the mouth of the lagoon at a site called Yellow Patch, named after a massive sand dune that rises from it’s banks.

The lagoon mouth opens into the expanse of the Pacific Ocean. It was a terribly hot day and the air was heavy and still. Although we had intended to stay the night, my husband who, in his youth, had been a navy diver and a helmsman, suddenly made the immediate decision to return to the house at South End.

A powerful electrical storm was building. We had to leave immediately to beat the rough seas home and reduce our night travel as much as possible.  We pulled anchor and headed for the lagoon mouth in fading light …

A unique story inspired a unique piece. The story’s conclusion in included with this piece.
