NECKLACES

Here are a variety of fun, dressy, and chic funky necklaces.  The beads are unique and were hand-selected from Modern Tibet and other companies at the Tucson shows.  All jewelry here are made from beads and components that are not typically found in your local bead store.   Many of the metal components are hand-wrought and/or hand-wrapped.  All are one of a kind designs.  Sterling silver, 14KYG-filled, copper, bronze, and brass wire and chain are used.  Lengths vary, but all can be modified to be longer or shorter. 

Since stone beads can be heavy, light weight beads of bone, resin, or wood are often integrated into some designs to lighten the load.  The use of bone and horn may sound odd, but in other nations they recycle everything, including bone and horn from animals which die a natural death (gnus and wildebeast most common, as well as cow).

Below is my WONKY necklace.  It is a delightful combination of shapes and colors formed into a large, asymetric pendant.  The black and white resin focals are accented around with blue and black wood, copper spacers, white agate, beige mother of pearl, and batiked bone.  The necklace is made of black wood beads, blue wood beads, batik bone, and copper spacers.  The pendant is worked on copper wire and the necklace is a dark brown leather.  Lobster claw clasp.

What is really intriguing about this pendant is the relationship between the meteorite and the center stone, "tektite" .  When a meteorite slams into the Earth, it is so scorching hot that it melts the area of impact and throws off these glass-like "tektite" shards.  So, you have the one story rolled into one necklace.
