A gorgeously asymmetrical hand cut jade necklace, truly art to wear! The necklace starts with a hand cut focal piece of 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 focal attaches to a length of dark, bronzey brown braided leather bolo style cord with links of oxidized copper wire wrap holding ovals of lions paw oystershell, matte red mooakite, faceted translucent agate, natural magnesite & copper spacer beads.
The length of this one of a kind necklace is 20″ (50.80 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!
