Watercolor designs adorn large chalk turquoise coin beads in this 19" necklace of stone, wood and metal. Chalk turquoise is a dyed sedimentary stone that has been stabilized for strength, and these 1 1/4" coin beads are the backdrop for watercolor forms in blues and greens. The designs have been glazed for water resistance though the design is not waterproof. (Unlike the name, the necklace should not actually be worn underwater!) Necklace fastens with a silver-plate hook and eye clasp.

Cost: $32.00 USD

Length: necklace - 19"


  • chalk turquoise coin beads with watercolor paper and glaze
  • natural and stained wood beads
  • silver-plated brass components
  • silver-plated copper toggle clasp
  • Accuflex heavyweight nylon coated stainless steel beading cord

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be frayed or severed through hard jerks or prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or fraying cord. Clean with a damp washcloth (do not submerge) and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on metal.

The materials and beading cord in this necklace are robust to tugs and pulls from most activities. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 19" necklace works well with a variety of necklines. Use of a stiffer beading cord means the necklace has a broader drape and more defined shape, and the higher volume of the wood beads may be too bulky under jackets or blazers.
