This beautiful necklace has a very summer like feel to it, full of a variety of blues, and an underlying butterfly theme. The centerpiece cabochons are pale Blue Lace agate and deep blue Lapis Lazuli. Blue lace agate is a type of banded fortification agate, and is mostly found in Namibia and South Africa, with additional deposits in Romania. Lapis Lazuli is a bright blue metamorphic rock consisting largely of Lazurite, and mottled with white calcite and pyrite. It has been prized through antiquity for its intense deep blue color and is mined primarily in northeast Afghanistan, with some mines located in Russia and the Andes of Chile. I set the two cabochons onto a backing of 24 gauge sterling silver sheet, and surrounded them with a serrated bezel of sterling silver. The hanger portion is a wrapped tube of sterling for the beaded portion of the necklace to pass through. Sarah included a variety of sterling silver and some pewter beads to enhance the sparkle of the piece. The beads of the necklace repeat the deep and pale blues of the centerpiece, along with a variety of butterfly shaped beads. The butterfly beads are carved Sodalite, sterling silver, pewter, and Chinese porcelain. Other beads include large Lapis Lazuli rectangles, blue lace agate, blue agate, cultured pearls, Swarovski crystal, and Czech glass. The clasp is sterling silver and is a hook and loop style for ease of application. This piece is 20 inches long, and the centerpiece pendant is 2 1/4 inches long by 2 inches wide. The available earrings are 1 inch long, and include the Chinese porcelain butterflies, Lapis, Swarovski crystal and sterling. This necklace will go well with a variety of light or dark clothing, both formal and more casual.
