Long Layered Statement Necklace with Blue Aquamarine, Lapis Lazuli, and Green Serpentine Stones



Lavish, long, and layered this is a bold statement necklace chock full of semiprecious stones in bright spring green and blue sky colors. Aquamarine, denim lapis, lapis lazuli, sodalite, and white quartz speak of blue skies speckled with clouds on a breezy spring day while yellow green serpentine stones are the glorious fresh new leaves dappled in sunlight moved in the wind.

This colorful gemstone one of a kind necklace combines beaded gemstone strands, copper chain, and copper wire work elements. My jewelry art usually employs wire wrapping to fabricate chains with or without stone links. This time, for color density - I really wanted to make a spring color statement - I chose to string the gemstones so they are packed closer together. I used varied forms of stone beads: small rounds, saucers, nuggets, faceted nuggets, cubes, rectangles, barrels, and drops. All the different shapes and stone types play well together in the blocks of color that encircle the piece. Spring greens give way to pale blue, then green again, then deep cobalt blue and white, back to green and so on.

The outer layer of the necklace is a beaded strand, the second layer is a solid copper chain with three eccentrically placed stone stations, and the inner layer of the necklace is a beaded strand wtih a copper bead and lapis stone pendant. All three strands come together at a unique handcrafted three to one component. The back of the necklace is an oval link copper chain. It closes with two handcrafted hooks. Close the hooks on each other to wear this three-layer necklace at its longest dimensions. Bring the hooks toward the front and hook them onto the chain just above the three-strand connector to wear the necklace at the shortest dimension. The copper chain will be doubled up at the back when worn this way.

Please check the dimensions before ordering - this is a long necklace. I am 5'2" tall and find that I like the necklace closed at the shorter dimentions, not the longest ones. If you are also smaller in height and build, I can alter the back of the necklace to close at just one length. You'd lose the adjustable nature, but the necklace would have a more balanced fit for you.
