  • 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.
