Amazing Amazonite with Copper ~ Delightful in this Necklace Set
This product is currently sold out.
The copper leaf (1.5" x 1") is just the tip of the iceberg in this combo of ice blue 8mm Amazonite round and 14mm flat disk beads and the heat of copper in the form of 4mm round copper beads, copper bead caps, copper toggle clasp and vintage, hard to describe, copper chain that loops a few times along one side of the necklace to the leaf, which is ever so slightly off-center at the bottom of the necklace. I introduced 6mm cultured, freshwater light blue pearls to the mix because I needed more length. I was surprised that the pearls and Amazonite matched incredibly well. The matching earrings contain 2 segments of the chain, an Amazonite bead and drop from copper, ball end, wired ear wires. (The copper is lead and nickel free, except for the vintage items which I do not know about).
The necklace measures 24.25" in length, including the clasp. Add an additional 1.5" for the length of the leaf. The earrings drop 1.25" from the ear wires.
This necklace was designed on a whim. I couldn't recall ever seeing light blue combined with copper in a necklace. I'm sure it probably has been, but I don't remember having cast my eyes upon that combination. So that became my project ~ to join together those two colors in a way that will be a design that is both beautiful and unique. I hope I was able to accomplish that challenge in your eyes as well. I can imagine this necklace set enhancing, and in fact transforming an outfit in the basic colors of white, grey or black.
