When I saw these beautiful hand flinted semi precious Rock Crystal Nuggets I knew I had to have them, they remind me of that part of the earth that is still mostly untouched..The Antarctic, with its crystal clean ice and mountainous icebergs. So with that in mind I created this necklace with a wire wrapped pendant design to the front. Each of the nuggets has been hand faceted and so each is completely unique to the others.
The pendant part of the necklace has a 26 gauge fine Silver (99% pure Silver) wire wrapped Keishi Pearl, on top of the pearl is a tiny micro faceted White Topaz, on top of the Topaz one of these gorgous Rock Crystal Nuggets, on top of this another micro faceted White Topaz and topped off with a Sterling Silver Filigree necklace bail.
I have accented these gorgeous rocks with semi precious Rock Crystal briolettes in groups of 3 and stunning creamy white freshwater Keishi Pearls also in groups of 3. (a Keishi Pearl is all pearl. The bead that goes inside of the mussel or oyster is rejected but the oyster keeps on producing the nacre that would normally cover the bead and thats why you get these stunning petal like shapes with beautiful rainbow colours on the outer skin of the pearl). Bali Sterling Silver stick beads again in groups of 3 and tiny 2mm Sterling Silver spacer beads spaced between each set of gemstones and pearls.
To finish a beautiful heavy duty Sterling Silver flower S clasp.
All crimps, crimp covers and wire guardians are also Sterling Silver.
The necklace measures: 18 inches unclasped, 11 inches clasped with the pendant hanging to the front.
