  1. Ref 1659
    £375.00

    • Once again Jaipur craftsmen have created a contemporary design using sugilite, a natural baroque pearl in peacock colour, and a manmade Alexandrite all set in sterling silver. The pendant is  1 ¾ inches long (4.5 cm) and 6 mm deep.
    • The necklace itself consists of three strands. The first is of handmade sterling silver by the Karen hill tribes in Thailand. Karen hill tribe Fair Trade silver is nearly 98% pure silver.  I mostly choose to use their silver because each piece is like a miniature bit of sculpture, individually crafted and created.  I know that artisans in Northern Thailand produce this unique silversmithing in small villages, involving whole families in the process.  Their work is fairly paid, and as a result, their beads are much more expensive. But a family is supported and wonderful beads and jewellery are produced in high quality silver.
    • The second is made up of 4mm amethyst beads.
    • And lastly, there are purple fluorite bricks at 4mm deep.
    • Two white jade beads bring the strands together.
    • I have used a silver toggle clasp.  Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • The necklace is 18 inches long or 46 cm. with a 2 inch pendant drop.

  4. Ref 1984
    £290.00

    • This double strand of silver Keshi pearls (12 mm) sets off this contemporary pendant crafted in Jaipur, India, where so much fine jewellery is made.
    • The craftsman has created a stunning pendant of Dandritec Agate, a freshwater baroque, cultured stick pearl in petrol colour, two very dark amethysts and a half pearl in what is known as peacock hues.  Each element has its own sterling silver setting and the pendant is all brought together into one striking piece at 2 inches long (5 cm) and at its widest, 1 ¼ inch (3.5 cm) and 7 mm deep.
    • On either side of the pendant, where it joins the keshi pearls, there are two brushed silver lantern beads (10 mm) from India.
    • The keshi pearls have a wonderful texture and shape that give a necklace a sense of both fun and elegance.
    • The silver keshi pearls have been dyed to this lustrous colour and finish. Dyed  pearls, which most pearls are, come about through a number of techniques.  The one I know, through someone who has a pearl farm in China, is one in which the pearls are placed for a month or more in a container with a liquid saturated with a powder dye. Electrodes gently move the pearls about so that they are evenly coloured.  Although people say the colour can fade, I have been working (and wearing) dyed pearls for many years. As long as you don't spray perfume or hairspray onto the pearls, the colour remains.  None of my pearls have faded.
    • A silver toggle clasp has been used because toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.  The clasp has been made by the Karen hill tribes, of twisted silver to create a rope design.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • The necklace is 16 inches long (41 cm) with a 2¼ inch pendant drop (6 cm).
