Truth word pendant, Tibetan carved bone bead, agate gemstone beads, Greek Mykonos green brown bone ceramic beads, pewter daisy spacers, brown deerskin lace leather, TierraCast jump ring

The word "truth" prevails in this inspirational leather boho necklace with an artisan-made pendant, Mykonos ceramic beads, a hand-carved Tibetan bone bead, agate gemstone rondelles, pewter daisy spacers, and brown deerskin lace. The pendant, which is made of polymer clay, is roughly 1 5/8 inches in length and quite durable. It is impressed with the word "truth" and has a color combination of light olive green with brown lettering and a darker green leaf design.

The Mykonos ceramic beads, made in Greece, are colorful eye-catchers that come in two different shapes: tube and washer. The tubes are lime green, bone, and brown in color, and the washers are dark green, lime green, and brown. The bone bead is from Nepal and was carved by Tibetan refugees there. It is decorated with the ancient "evil eye" protector symbol, and so looks like a talisman. I purchased it in a Tibetan-run dharma shop in Newport, RI.

The agate gemstone rondelles are a light shade of earthy orange and quite shiny. The pewter daisy spacers also have a nice shine and add a metallic glint to the necklace. The pendant is linked to the main strand with a silver-on-pewter jump ring from TierraCast (made in the USA).

The necklace's deerskin leather lace (also made in the USA) is soft and supple, and measures 1/8 of an inch in width. Although thin, this lace is quite strong, and will stretch but not break. I used double slipknots in this piece, leaving a tail on either end and ornamenting it with more Greek beads.

All in all, this "truth" word pendant leather necklace is a stylish and meaningful bohemian-style jewelry creation that also has tribal affinities. It was handmade beaded by me with care, thought, and best wishes for its destined wearer. The necklace comes in a small box and wrapped for gift giving to someone who values truth and higher principles—especially timely concerns at the moment. Perhaps that someone will be you!

How to Adjust Necklace Length

Please note that the slipknots do not move. Each knot is tied around a leather strand, and it is the strand that moves, passing through the knots, making the necklace adjustable in size.

• To shorten the necklace, hold one knot (right or left) and gently pull upward on its corresponding back strand, where the neck section is. Then do the same on the other side, with the opposite knot and back strand. Shortening will increase the double-stranded neck section, and shorten the front single-strand section.

• To lengthen the necklace, hold one knot (right or left) and gently pull downward on its corresponding front strand. Then do the same on the other side, with the opposite knot and front strand. The doubled strands that rest at the back of the wearer's neck will thus be shortened, and the single strands at the front will be lengthened.

The necklace length is set at 31 inches including the pendant. It can be lengthened by about 8 inches. If you increase the length, be sure to leave at least an inch of the double back strands so that you easily grip the short strands with your fingers if you later to reshorten the necklace later on.

Please note that the knots used for adjustment are not glued, due to the nature of this kind of leather. If the knots begin to loosen, simply tighten, using the beaded free tail end.

I like to ship quickly, usually 1 or 2 days after payment unless it's a weekend or holiday. Please ensure your shipping address is current.

U.S. ORDERS: I ship USPS First Class w/Tracking. If you want to purchase insurance or upgrade, please contact me.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: After many years of shipping internationally, I am temporarily ceasing such shipments.

However, if you live outside the U.S. and would like to buy something, contact me. I will do what I can to help. Be aware that any tariffs, customs fees, and surcharges are paid by the buyer.

Note that shipping is now very costly for USPS First Class International, which is what I would normally use. Also, if you live in the EU, I do not have GDPR policies at the moment.
I sincerely want you to be happy with your purchase.

Returns are accepted if you contact me within 7 days after delivery to you. I expect to receive the item no later than 2 weeks after delivery. If this timeframe is problematic for you, contact me before buying. Also, I do allow extensions for special holidays such as Christmas and Valentine's Day, as some people buy early, me included!

For All Items: I will refund for the purchase price minus original shipping cost.

You are responsible for return shipping with tracking (U.S.). Items should be in their original condition, with the original wrapping and packing materials. Extra items, like jewelry cards, gift bags, boxes, freebies, should be included.
Non-receipt: I will do my very best to help you if items go astray. Tracking provides information on the item's routing to its destination, and I always ship directly from the post office rather than relying on postal pick-up. Again, please be sure that your shipping address is CURRENT.

Damage: I pack orders well to minimize any problem in this area. However, if your purchase arrives damaged, contact me immediately. I will do my very best to help.
I accept PayPal and Etsy Payments. Please be aware that even if you are not a member of PayPal, you can securely use it to pay for your purchase with a major credit card.

Payment must be made within 24 hours of purchase or the order will be cancelled.

To Rhode Islanders: Sorry to say, but by law I must apply 7% sales tax to your purchase and pass it on to "the governor."

Buyers from other states may also be charged state sales tax. In this case, your tax payment is determined and handled by Etsy, not me.
Yes, I am always happy to accept a custom order! Whether or not I require a deposit, full amount, or neither will depend on the nature of the order. I have done a number of such orders elsewhere with no deposit or purchase required, as I knew I could simply add those items to my inventory if the customer decided not to purchase. (Customers always did purchase them, though.) I always show photos of custom orders to the customer.
If you are buying a gift for someone and have used that person's address for shipping, please let me know at the time of ordering - I will be happy to include a complimentary notecard in which is written whatever message you would like to send.

Of course, I am always happy to send to that person's address. Just please make sure it is CURRENT. Thank you!
