|||/\/\||| growth |||/\/\||| Carefully & thoughtfully beaded necklace, featuring high quality czech glass beads & peridot stones strung on silk thread. Each bead was thoughtfully selected and hand knotted onto the thread. The glass beads range in all kinds of soothing earthy tones mixed with deep blues, some finished with a silvered wash; others with an old world design. A translucent black plume agate originating from Marfa, TX, picked from an old stock collection was chosen for this piece. The stone was cut and shaped in my home studio from rough material. I then fabricated the setting and bail from raw materials, including sterling silver sheet & wire, and 14k gold filled bezel & wire. Hand fabricated sterling silver beads were added to the necklace as well. A handcrafted shepherd's hook clasp holds this piece together. This necklace is 33 inches long with a 1 1/2 x 1" pendant.
