I have a new necklace design in my Etsy shop! I have added a simple design that showcases beautiful smaller stone beads. Each necklace features a five inch length (13 cm) of smaller stone beads, typically in the 3-5mm size range, many of them sparkling faceted rondelle shape. The beads are strung on nylon-coated steel beading wire that is durable and flexible, secured at each end with a sterling round crimp cover (that looks like a round silver bead) over the crimp for a polished finish. The beaded portion drapes in a nice curve. The bead strand hangs from a lighter weight chain than I use for my other necklaces to complement the smaller beads. The chain is a cable style with flat oval links that catch the light for a bit of additional sparkle, finished with a lobster clasp. Chain is .935 Argentium Silver, all findings are at least .925 Sterling Silver. They are available as 18 inch or 16 inch necklaces, or if you prefer a different length please contact me through the Etsy listing before purchasing (longer lengths may have a small additional charge). This style looks great by itself, and would also work well as a layering piece. If there is a certain stone you’d like to see made in this design, let me know!
