The inspiration for this piece is the appearance of the limestone and blue
aventurine beads together in what resemble the vertebrae and discs of
a spine. The warm red garnet and cool blue sodalite nuggets suggest the
supply and return of life-giving blood.
Cost: $56.00 USD

M a t e r i a l s & C a r e
Length: necklace - 20"
- limestone beads
- blue aventurine beads
- sodalite beads
- garnet beads
- sterling silver beads
- sterling silver hook and eye clasp
- SoftFlex nylon-coated stainless steel beading cord (10 lb load test)
Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be kinked or broken through hard jerks or severed through
prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching
or kinking cord. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft
jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.
Although a 10 lb. load test doesn't sound robust, it is stronger than one may think! This necklace
should withstand plenty of "loving" from inquistive hands. The beading cord may fray and
break if rubbed against rough edges, and the necklace is likely to break near the clasp with
a sharp yank (such as catching it on something while moving forward with full body weight). As with
all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
W h a t t o W e a r
Not all jewelry - particularly beaded jewelry - work well with all varieties of necklines.
The 20" necklace length means the necklace will lay flat and look balanced with
crew necks, boat necks, turtle necks and shallow scoop necks. It might look awkward
with V-necks, and it may be difficult to pair with collared shirts.
