Red, charcoal, and silver work in unison throughout the necklace. The necklace was inspired by a lifetime of stargazing and a deep love of red. Starflower beaded beads are created from Czech glass dagger beads and paired with crystals to form the bright centers. Separating each starflower is an agate drusy bead. All of the 8mm round drusy beads have naturally-occurring crystal inclusions sparkling out. The long sterling silver chain closes on the front side with a handmade sterling silver eclipse toggle decorated with an image of the sun and a crescent moon.

Red Star Bright - Necklace
The toggle and chain are Sterling Silver. Sterling Silver can tarnish. Store the necklace in a Ziploc type bag between wearing. This will protect the sterling from the atmosphere that causes the surface to oxidize. Occasionally spritz the entire necklace with Windex, rub around so all surfaces are covered, and rinse thoroughly. Rinse some more to insure that there is no residue from the Windex. Let dry 24 hours in the air. The Windex procedure will remove the oils from you skin that can cause oxidization. Return to the Ziploc type bag. This will keep the sterling bright and shiny. If you prefer a patina look, store where the air gets to the necklace and occasionally polish with a cleaning cloth (included in your packaging) and the lower areas will naturally darken and you determine how shiny the high spots are with how much you rub. All jewelry requires some care to remain beautiful.
I guarantee my jewelry for one year with normal wear. Please think about it and don't engage in vigorous exercise or sporting games while wearing your jewelry. Most jewelry loves calm activity. Most of the beads I use are glass. If dropped on hard surfaces (concrete, ceramic, stone) those beads can break. I will do my best to repair damage, but there will be a charge for the supplies and my time.
If you loss it I cannot replace that. With a lost earring I will try to duplicate if I still have that same bead or beads and we will discuss a fair value payment for the one earring.
Exchanges can be made for an item of equal or lesser value, but the original item must be returned in its original condition before the exchange will be sent. I determine what original condition is. Value adjustments will be made if you are owed money in the exchange.

I want you to be happy with what you purchase from my shop. Once I receive the returned item I will refund your payment and your credit card or pay pal will be credited.
