A gorgeously asymmetrical hand cut jade necklace, truly art to wear! We created the focal piece from some uniquely colored Burmese jade. The stone shades from “mutton fat” grayish white to a rusty orange & is a wedge shape. The top & straight side of the wedge are beveled & polished, while the opposite side is left naturally rough. The stone is held in the serpentine embrace of heavy gauge copper wire which is both bail & the ring of a toggle style, front facing clasp. The second photo shows the toggle open.
We created the necklace with darkly oxidized, chunky copper rolo chain, spaced by copper wire wrap links holding a mix of gemstone beads. There’s an ocher “moon” of fossilized coral, elongated beads of lions paw oyster shell, rust & white mookaite, banded agate, a crescent shaped bead of peach moonstone, a very old African bi-cone bead of white agate, a flat disc of natural bamboo coral and solid copper twist & granulation beads.
The length of this one of a kind necklace is 25″ (63.5 cm) in total, including the toggle clasp assemblage. The focal measures 3″ (7.62 cm) in length, including the wire bail form & 1.25″ (3.17 cm) at it’s widest point.
Our hand cut gemstone beads & carvings are made by us, in our studio, one at a time with love, patience, energy and attention to detail. You can absolutely find cheaper, mass-produced, sweat-shop made stone beads & carvings, but if you appreciate the natural energy a stone holds, why not treat yourself to truly one of a kind pieces in which that energy has been respected & built upon!
Our stone earring tabs are fabricated carefully & skillfully, but please handle them with a bit of care. Excessively rough handling or dropping them on a hard surface could cause possible chipping or breakage. They are natural stone & Nature can be fragile!
