Martha Stewart was famous for creating stunning gifts and perfectly tied packages, and I've tried her projects with varying degrees of success. The pearl and Swarovski crystal feature offset in this 16" prehnite and amazonite (both feldspars) necklace is like a bow on a pretty package: a focal element that finishes a piece. Enjoy over 70 carats of cool cucumber green high-grade prehnite along with the sparkle of Swarovski crystal and gleam of sterling silver, and let these pieces be the final wrapping touch to an everyday outing or special event. The necklace can even be doubled to make a lovely wrap bracelet (see this and other examples on the necklets page). Matching earrings are approximately 2" with sterling silver earwires.

Cost: $154.00 USD

If this item is going to be a gift, enter the gift recipient name in the text box when you add this item to your cart. If your entire order is going to one recipient (yourself or other), no other action is needed and you can specify the shipping address in PayPal checkout. However, if you would like multiple recipients in the same order, we can accommodate that! Before you check out, make sure to add a gift box to your cart for each gift recipient in your order. You will be charged $4.95 USD for each recipient other than yourself and you'll need to add the recipient name and address to the gift box text field. Also, each recipient can receive multiple items for the same $4.95 gift box fee; just continue to specify their name when adding items to your cart.

Length: necklace - 16"

Materials:

  • faceted prehnite gemstone beads
  • amazonite beads
  • freshwater pearls
  • Swarovski crystal beads
  • sterling silver chain and earwires
  • sterling silver hook & eye 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 beads and beading cord should withstand determined toddler tugs and pulls. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 16" necklace can be worn with higher necklines, such as boatnecks and crewnecks, as well as moderate scoop necks and v-necks. Deeper necklines may make the necklace appear out of proportion. It can also be doubled as a terrific wrap bracelet.
