santa fe round necklace


Colour inspiration taken from the culture of old Santa Fe brings this modern and easy to wear necklace alive! Turquoise and ivory glass beads animated by circles, dots and stripes, all set off by a touch of silver.

My hands made this grass and sky round necklace. The beads are graduated in size from 14mm x 10 mm to 15mm x 17mm. The beads are separated with sterling silver rings. The beads float on a sterling silver round wire which measures 18” and has an extension allowing the maximum length of the necklace to be 20”. The necklace closes with a sterling silver lobster claw.

My hands made these glass beads. I use Effetre glass, a little CIM and occasionally Vetrofond. There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass. All my beads are kiln annealed, thoroughly cleaned and inspected.

Please remember the jewelry looks larger than life in the pictures which is why it is important to check the size. I have tried to capture the colours as accurately as possible but many monitors vary.
