So comfortable as the strong, smooth silk is very light with beautiful drape for a necklace that will work with many necklines and will layer with numerous other pieces, including some of the pieces here in my studio. Worn as a cuff, it's so soft and light you will forget you're wearing it. If you plan to wear it as a cuff, please include your wrist measurement in notes to seller at check out so I can tweak your final length adjustment, as these pieces are made to order.
My initial inspiration was some lovely 6 mm clear green tinted glass beads, like the glass from old canning jars or old window glass. I had also been saving some pastel aqua striped "chevron" beads, similar to the designs used for old trading beads. I pulled this together with a bit of peridot jasper for it's yellow color and dots of opalized aqua Czech glass seed beads. The heavy silk is artisan dyed floss and is very strong and soft.
This collection of soft colors is perfect for Spring and will coordinate well with many of the earrings in my studio. I include one photo with some prehnite dangles as the green in the natural stones seem to work really well with the silk color and the glass palette. These earrings are available as a separate listing https://www.etsy.com/listing/99707290/green-prehnite-and-sterling-silver?
This piece is easily hand washable with mild soap and then hung with a bit of weight to dry.
