In the early 1900s, Beatrix Potter delighted young and old readers alike with tales of woodland creatures among us. The pale colors of new shoots and tasty buds would entice the most timid of bunnies, never mind the bold Mr. Cottontail himself. Indeed, a sterling silver Peter rabbit hangs from the simple toggle of this 15" necklace that's just the right length for gardening (no dangling low and catching on nearby plants) or wearing as a charming bracelet.

Cost: $36.50 USD

Length: necklace - 15"

Materials:

  • freshwater pearls
  • dyed freshwater pearls
  • chalk turquoise beads
  • Japanese glass beads
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver charm
  • sterling silver toggle clasp
  • Soft Flext moderate duty nylon coated stainless steel wire (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.

Pearls and chalk are softer materials than other gemstones so care should be taken not to step on them or otherwise crush them, but the design should be robust to tugs and pulls from toddlers. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This is a short necklace (15") that will look best with higher crewnecks or boatnecks, and it makes a terrific wrap bracelet (see necklets for more examples of shorter necklaces that can double as bracelets).
