This colorful necklace combines white shell heishis with rainbow colors and golden accents. The result is a contemporary design with a bit of flash. For the focal of the necklace I used two small goldstone heishi beads framed with antiqued gold plated beads. Beads in rainbow colors and a variety of shapes move away from the sparkling center. The pattern of red, orange, yellow, blue and purple framed by goldstone and gold are interspersed in the necklace. A final dash of gold and goldstone leads to the golden hook closure to complete the design.
The necklace measures 19 ¾ inches long which is a good choker length for a man or a loose choker for a woman, but the length can be changed if you would like. The stones in the necklace have traditionally been considered healing stones. The red, orange, yellow, and purple beads are howlite which is also known as “tranquility stone” and is thought to decrease stress and promote restful sleep. The round blue stone is aventurine which is believed to stimulate creativity and decrease negative emotions. Goldstone, which is very lively, is man-made from processes documented by the Miotti family in Venice, Italy, in the 17th century. This necklace with its interesting elements and colorful combinations will add a spark of cheer to any day.
