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

SKU: KBS5138
  • The Sterling Silver in the chain and lobster claw has a patina. Store the necklace in a Ziploc type bag between wearing so the silver doesn't get too dark. 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 or darkening. Return to the Ziploc type bag for storage. If you prefer a dark patina look, store where the air gets to the necklace and occasionally polish with a polishing square (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 maintain its beauty.

    I guarantee my jewelry for one year with normal wear. Please do not engage in vigorous exercise or sporting games while wearing your Kathryn Bowman Studio jewelry. Most of the beads I use are glass. If dropped on hard surfaces (concrete, ceramic, stone, marble) 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.

    If you are not happy with your item please feel free to return it at your expense. Any returns must be in absolute original condition before money is returned. 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.
