This is a blue Chalcedony gemstone necklace. Chalcedony belongs to the quartz group of minerals. It was used in ancient times by Egyptians, Greeks and Romans for jewellery and its name may have been derived from the Greek City of Chalcedony. This necklace is most unusual because the stone has been cut into graduated pear-shaped Briolettes which is a beautiful and elegant faceted gemstone cut. The gemstones are on a 21 cm string ranging and from 10 to 20mm each sone. They hang from an attractive adjustable silver chain to allow it to be worn at a variety of lengths from 44.5 cm to 49cm.
This very sparkly gemstone necklace comprises of three strings of faceted yellow citrine and to one string I have added
Ocean Jasper necklace with shades of colours greens, greys, creams and golden tones. They are irregular in shape and have been arranged at the front of the necklace spaced with twig shaped pieces of silver. I have then attached them to a hollow silver hoop and it fastens with a hook and eye at the back. Approximate length 46cm
This necklace consists of beautiful freeform Hematite crystals. The Inclusions in the gemstones give lovely patterns. The beads are in hues of orange, red and pink. It is very delicate looking and most unusual. I have placed silver torpedo like silver beads in the necklace for contrast. Approximatley 45cm Long and each nugget is about 1cm in diameter.
The silver links on this chain have been formed using the texture of a leaf from a Ginkgo tree. Between some of the links I have used fresh water pearls 7-10mm each which are cream, blue and green in shade. The chain is 1cm wide and 103 cm long which enables you to wear it long or wrap it round twice for a shorter necklace. I have made a matching toggle clasp which is easy to open.
This chunky necklace is made up of five strands of white Quartz chips with two electric blue strands of Hematite running through to add colour. Gathering these strands together are two large silver hoops. The strands lead through two silver cones and Moonstone beads leading up to the clasp at the back.
