Chiaroscuro (kiːˈɑːrə.ˈskʊroʊ, –ˈskjʊroʊ, Italian for light-dark) in art is characterized by strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition. It is also a technical term used by artists and art historians for using contrasts of light to achieve a sense of volume in modeling three-dimensional objects such as the human body.

The "Chiaroscuro Necklace" is a bold statement piece not intended for the weak of heart. Striking texture and color - this is a necklace that was designed to be noticed (and envied).
Composed of a heavily encrusted neckline of huge lemon-honey smooth-polished quartz nuggets, large smooth-polished pink amethyst rondelles, large, smooth-polished aquamarine rondelles, faceted peacock-green mystic amethyst rondelles, faceted labradorite spiral twist briolettes, faceted labradorite rondelles, faceted aquamarine rondelles and faceted pale green amethyst rondelles (prasiolite) - each poised on a hand forged fine silver flat (hammered) headpin.
This lush section of gems features two large sterling silver links on each end, from which a an elegant, yet slightly disheveled vintage satin ribbon is tied. The ribbon is hand frayed and the truest color I have ever encountered that resembles the mysterious hue of labradorite. It's a "sort of" gray-brown-bit'of violet...a color you can't quite label other than "labradorite" - and was the inspiration for the entire color scheme I have created.
The silk/satin ribbon is long enough to slip easily right over the head - no need for a clasp and can always be removed and replaced with ribbon of your own choosing.
The Chiaroscuro Necklace is oh so unapologetically dramatic and different!

Length of gemstone section: 10 inches
Ribbon: Approximately 16 1/2 inches long
