Elements of nature are emphasized in this 20" necklace of open sterling silver chain and marble. The stones are called rainforest marble which has no actual link to a rainforest other than the interesting swirl of greens and browns in the marble, and these are accompanied by dazzling sterling silver and marcasite dragonflies, both on a bead and as the hook & eye clasp. Marcasite is the same chemical composition as pyrite, just in a different crystalline organization. The dark sparkling stones provide intricate detail for the creature designs. Open link sterling silver cable finishes the necklace design with rippling patterns, like waves on the water.

Cost: $161.00 USD

Length: necklace - 20"


  • rainforest marble beads
  • marcasite and sterling silver bead
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver chain
  • marcasite and sterling silver hook & eye 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 beads and chain should withstand determined toddler tugs and pulls. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This mid-length 20" necklace works well with many necklines, except for a v-neck at about the same depth, which leads to competition between necklace and neckline. The necklace has larger stones and a broader drape so it may not work well with blazers either, depending on the cut and fit. However, it should be long enough to fit over a fine gauge sweater or turtleneck.
