The pale salmon to green colors in the Czech glass rectangles made me think of cantaloupe, the quintessential fruit of a morning brunch or buffet. The easy but sophisticated style seemed at home in a sunlight room, taking a moment to enjoy the morning before embarking on a day of leisurely adventure.

Cost: $79.00 USD

Length: necklace - 20"

Materials:

  • Czech glass druk beads
  • Czech glass pressed beads
  • 14kt 1/20 gold-fill beads
  • vermeil hook and eye clasp
  • SoftFlex nylon-coated stainless steel beading cord (10 lb load test)
  • PowerPro braided nylon cord (30 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.

The beading cord is robust but the gold-fill bead tips connecting the multiple strands of glass are softer and too easily bent or broken by continued tugging on the strands. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

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. V-necks may be hit or miss, but it is long enough that it could be paired over a collared shirt, if the top button was around the breastbone or so. It is a longer necklace, but the materials are lightweight so it is easy on the neck.
