Fabulously wild double strand necklace inspired by the blue waves of the Adriatic Sea. My summer seems to have been spent in awe of the unbelievable range of blues and greens only water can bring us. The blues of the Adriatic range from deep teal to bright turquoise blue, spectacularly emphasized by the frothy white crest as the waves come crashing into the shore. This design brings forth these dramatic colors by the deep blues of the apatite showing nice white streaks to add perfect pattern, and the bright blue turquoise beads. White biwa nugget pearls add those rugged white accents that I loved so much in the waves, and peacock keishi pearls play off the blues in the necklace. I felt that little silver is needed, and these Bali beads are simple and subtly hidden with their scalloped patterns. Absolutely love it! Necklace length is adjustable from 17 3/4" to 20 3/4" (45-52.5 cm) in length (measurement taken at the shorter strand) the larger apatite stones measure about 15x15 mm.
Includes: natural blue apatite triangle faceted flat nuggets and smooth round beads; blue turquoise smooth round beads (stabilized); cultured white biwa (waxberry) freshwater nugget pearls (enhancement unknown); peacock keishi pearls (dyed); sterling silver Bali-style beads and beadcap, smooth round beads, hook clasp, extender chain, bullion wire and headpin.
