A celebration of vibrant colors and flowers! The artist's love of red speaks loud and clear in this necklace, with the contrast of ruby red and ebony black creating a feeling of drama. The floral beaded beads are created from Czech glass petal and drop beads, with Japanese seed beads adding texture and super duo beads providing a center core. The central beadwork is suspended from a chunky sterling silver chain with a smoky, dark gray patina. A lobster claw closure makes it easy to fasten.
Dimensions: L: 22” W: 2” H: .75”
Ruby and Ebony Necklace
Czech glass beads, Chinese crystals, and Japanese seed beads form the main body of the necklace. The chain and lobster claw closure are sterling silver that has been patina to darken the silver.
The chain and lobster claw closure are sterling silver. The silver has had a patina applied to darken it. 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 ensure that there is no residue from the Windex. Air dry 24 hours. The Windex procedure will remove the oils come from your skin that can cause oxidization and the frequency will depend on how often you wear your cuff. Return to the Ziploc type bag when the necklace is thoroughly dry. All jewelry requires some care to maintain its beauty.
