I had to return this lovely item and it was accepted and refunded immediately! In spite of the fact that the necklace did' work for me, I consider this a very successful transaction. Highly recommended!

I am very impressed with this necklace. The description and picture was right on point. It is a very dainty necklace with quality hand made pieces. I would definitely purchase another piece from this maker.

About

Handmade Semi Precious Jewelry: jewels for work, for play, for romance, jewels for the modern woman of today, and future heirlooms for tomorrow!

The brand NANCY JOHNSON was launched in 1980. I served as President and Design Director of my own wholesale fashion company know for vintage inspired, romantic womens clothing. With over 2500 stores, my clients included elite stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Nieman Marcus, Lord and Taylor, Talbots, Bloomingdales,and Dillard's. In many flagship stores, I had my own signature NANCY JOHNSON "Woman with a Past" free standing boutiques, including Harrod's, London, Saks, Beverly Hills and Marshall Field, Chicago.

In 2000, I changed course and began to pursue a lifelong passion for design and beauty in the complimentary field of gemstones and jewelry. I love both the "fashion statement" giant gems, and the tiny stones that sparkle with all the bright colors of the sea and fire and earth. I spend two months a year in India and the Orient sourcing the raw materials. These jewels are cut and combined together with an eye for style and beauty, and utilizing the intricate skills of Indian master silversmiths and gem carvers.

I string much of the jewelry in my California studio. I also supervise several artisans and stringers in India to create some of the necklaces and to cast my designer signature clasps and other pieces. Shop members include: Tikam A, Harvinder S, and Alok C, and stringers Ashok and Vinay. And some late nights in California,my hubbie, David B, and best girl Lori, are very handy with silverwork and various small business operations.

We all love our work and are dedicated to making the most beautiful, unique, original jewelry for you to enjoy and treasure forever.

Welcome to Studio Collections by Nancy Johnson. I have long enjoyed creating beautiful items of clothing and jewelry for women who love a unique, yet romantic and vintage look. My necklaces and earrings are one of kind or in a small limited editions. I am very selective and only use quality semi-precious gemstones. Each year I depart to many countries to bring back the gemstones that I fashion into beautiful pieces that I'm pleased to showcase online for the first time on Etsy.
