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.
