Metamorphosis refers to a transition from an immature form to an adult form, such as tadpole to frog or caterpillar to butterfly. However, in a more general sense, metamorphosis can refer to any significant change that has altered one's state. What I like about the materials in this necklace is that they move smoothly and effortlessly between warm and cool hues; the soft dove gray and cool silver rest beside light peach, deep orange and warm copper and all within a whole that occurs naturally. Brilliant! The moonstone in this necklace is the orthoclase variety, meaning it shows a more mellow radiant glow and less flashing iridescence than the plagioclase variety. The necklace is secured with an organic form sterling silver hook & eye clasp.

Cost: $115.00 USD

Length: necklace - 17 1/2"


  • faceted moonstone gemstone beads
  • moonstone beads
  • brushed silver beads
  • copper beads
  • sterling silver small cable chain and lobster clasp
  • Soft Flex moderate duty nylon coated stainless steel 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. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The beading cord and components should be robust against tugs and pulls from curious young hands. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 17.5" necklace can be worn with a variety of necklines, from high boatnecks to moderate scoop necks and V-necks. It is a relatively lightweight necklace and it might not drape as well over chunky materials or tops with volume, and care should be taken with mixing it with patterns. It is a classic design with interesting colors that can be worn equally well with casual or evening attire.
