Mother of Pearl Leaves and Chips Join Silver and Wood Leaves in this Double Strand Necklace Set
This product is currently sold out.
The majority of beads in this necklace are Mother of Pearl chips (one strand) as well as a string of Mother of Pearl exquisitely carved leaves as part of strand two. To carry this theme to fruition, a 50x24mm slightly carved wooden leaf in green is connected via a sterling silver chain to a rather dramatic silver leaf, 50x32mm, purchased in an antique store as a brooch and the pin removed. I guess you could call this a ‘leafy’ creation. There are a series of 6mm round pearlized moss green beads, each sporting a silver bead cap. Additionally there are faceted 4mm rondelle gemstones separating several of the leaves. All elements join at the tube sterling silver clasp. The matching earrings contain a leaf and rondelle, dropping from sterling silver ear wires.
The necklace measures 21 ½” for the longer strand and 19 ½” for the shorter one. The leaf group drops below the necklace 3 ½”. The earrings drop ¾” from the ear wires.
The design took a totally different path than I originally envisioned and I guess I am pleased with what I created. If you like unique, this is definitely the necklace for you. It would look fantastic dropping over a sweater or dress in a plain color and as for when to wear something like this ~ I think any time of year and any occasion would be perfect for displaying this unusual necklace set.
