Although the Netherlands are famous for tulips, the cultivation of the tulip began in Persia around the 10th century. Bulbs were brought to Europe in the 1500s and tulip mania in 1634-1636 saw tulip bulbs treated as currency. Like other speculative bubbles, the tulip market collapsed in early 1637 when buyers were scarce, perhaps due to an outbreak of the plague. Thankfully, tulip cultivation continued and lead to a number of varieties, including the "tulip flair" which is a single-early deep orange-red flower edged with bright yellow. The saturated color of tulip flair is found in this short necklace of Swarovski crystal and Czech glass that can also be doubled as a bracelet.

Length: necklace - 16"


  • Swarovski crystal beads
  • Czech glass beads
  • Japanese glass seedbeads
  • sterling silver toggle clasp
  • Power Pro moderate duty braided Spectra Fiber™ (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 small Japanese glass seedbeads can be crushed with too much pressure so it's recommended to keep this out of reach. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

Not all jewelry - particularly beaded jewelry - work well with all necklines. The 16" necklace is short, which means it will rest naturally for many women at the collar bones. This length is suitable with high crew necks or boatnecks, and it may be double wrapped for a colorful bracelet (see this and other necklets).
