In general, I tend to avoid the obviously dyed stones because I enjoy the great color
and pattern of natural stones. However, I also love the contrast of deep raspberry and pale blue
and I couldn't resist the combination of the crazy lace agate and the blue opal (which I suspect
has also been color enhanced!). The rhodochrosite squares are lovely and natural, and the beads
and clasp are sterling silver. When I made this necklace, I sized it to be slightly longer than
the Blue Skies

M a t e r i a l s & C a r e
Length: necklace - 20"
- rhodochrosite beads
- crazy lace agate (dyed) beads
- blue opal beads
- sterling silver beads
- sterling silver hook and eye clasp
- Soft Flex 0.019" moderate duty nylon coated stainless steel cord
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.
The beading cord is quite strong, but the rhodochrosite beads are a relatively soft stone
that should not be dropped or otherwise impacted. For this reason, I recommend keeping it
away from curious young hands.
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, 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 with many stones
so it is not light, but not uncomfortably heavy either.
