The pale milky glow of morning dew is imitated in this short 13"-15" adjustable length necklace of sea opal glass teardrops and round beads. Delicate glass seedbeads separate the smooth glass teardrops, ending with glass rounds and a sterling silver 2" extension chain and lobster clasp. The necklace can also double as a wrap bracelet. This is a great gift for someone who enjoys the 3 S's in jewelry: simple, subtle, stunning.

Cost: $34.00 USD

Length: necklace - 13"-15"

Materials:

  • sea opal glass teardrops
  • sea opal glass beads
  • Japanese glass seedbeads
  • sterling silver extension chain and lobster clasp
  • Power Pro moderate duty braided Spectra Fiber™ 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 is strong and should be robust to toddler tugs and pulls, but care should be taken because the sterling silver beadtips securing the cord to the clasp can be bent or broken with sustained pulling. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This adjustable 13"-15" necklace is an ideal choker style for higher necklines. It can also be doubled as a wrap bracelet (what I call a "necklet", see the necklets page for more examples). The shortness of the length and light, translucent glow pair well with other necklaces: see the champagne tasting menu.
