Jade Pool Beaded Necklace
Jade cabochon with a beaded bezel of shimmering bronze, accented with a vintage golden crystal that is also framed in beaded peyote stitch. A one of a kind piece!
This beautiful piece of olive jade has been paired with a vintage golden crystal, and both of them given a beaded frame, called a bezel, that is intricately stitched from glass seed beads. The strand from which the pendant hangs is beaded with tiny glass seed beads, and gold and green glass beads.
Unless you are in a rockhound sort of household, the terms ‘cabochon’ and ‘rivoli’ are not commonly spoken! But cabochon is what describes the larger stone–it is flat backed, rounded on the one side, and designed to fit into a metal or beaded setting. The rivoli is a round crystal, faceted. Both of these are what I like to call modern classics; they have a distinctively vintage appeal (and in fact the golden rivoli is a vintage piece of glass, from about the 1940’s)) but they have been designed to fit the modern aesthetic, with a little more of a minimalistic line.
I love creating these individual types of neck ornaments, and I hope you love wearing it!
Length: As shown, about 16 inches. This length is flexible, although I designed it so the pendant would hang at about adam’s apple length, (not quite a choker). Most of the time I try to create a piece that can fit the customer’s own preference as to style and how you like to wear things; so this necklace can be lengthened with chain (antique bronze chain) if you would like it longer.
Materials used: Olive jade cabochon, crystal glass rivoli (vintage) glass seed beads, antique bronze finishes (chain and clasp). Nylon thread.
Shipping: Free to domestic U.S. address; for international shipping please read here for more info.
