Joie de Vivre jewelry

s a n d   &   s e a 

Pieces of white shell join the mottled crazy lace agate gemstones "sand" and the vibrant blue-green apatite gemstone "sea" in this 20" necklace with white bronze hook and eye clasp. Delicate Japanese glass seedbeads space the gemstones which drape beautifully thanks to supple and strong silk cord. Apatite is a calcium phosphate mineral that is the basis for bones and teeth, though like the gemstones in this necklace, apatite can form as crystals rather than fine-grained masses. The rich sea-blue color is the result of combinations of fluorine, chlorine or hydroxyl with the calcium phosphate. Crazy lace agate comes from Chihuahua, in Northern Mexico, and the gemstone is known for its striking banded patterns. Together the gemstones create a lovely beach-like feel.

Cost: $48.00 USD

  • matte crazy lace agate round gemstones
  • apatite gemstones
  • Czech glass round
  • white shell pieces
  • Japanese Miyuki glass seedbeads

Care & cleaning: Clean with a gentle, pH neutral soap and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners as well as sonic cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on metal. Store flat to prevent natural silk cord from stretching.

Apatite is a softer gemstone and rough handling such as hard impacts can chip or crack the crystalline stone. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
