Lightning Strikes with Black Basalt Rounds and Unique Black Beads
This product is currently sold out.
Seriously, this necklace has a 55mm stainless steel Lightning Bolt Charm and bail as the main focal of this designer artisan necklace set! I really like stainless steel and decided this one would be great for a unisex piece of jewelry. Next to the bail are two (one on each side) stainless steel beads which are followed by 8mm round Basalt beads, 7mm eight-sided roundish black beads (I don't know a name to use for those) and intermittent silver toned decorative spacer beads. There are a few more silver beads as well as a few black crystals at the end of the strand leading up to the sterling silver trigger clasp.
Although there are different connotations for the lightning bolt symbol, the one that defines it as a sign of strength is the one I agree with. Also, just wanted to elaborate on the eight-sided beads because they are unique. They have an iridescence to areas surrounding black circles that is intriguing.
The necklace measures 17" including the clasp. Add in an additional 2 1/8" for the length of the lightning bolt.
In designing any necklace, you usually start with a focal bead or other decorative element and add other beads that will enhance the center of attention - that being the lightning bolt in this case. It was a fun creation and believe it would be a great necklace for either male or female since it is a popular, go with anything, black color.
