The elements of this necklace are indeed from the earth ~ the wood ‘swords’ and oblong wood pieces obviously are from our trees; the bamboo tube beads as well are from a plant and then the silver needle cubes and tiger eye round beads are from the hard subterranian core of the earth. Being a lover of nature, I find great beauty in objects of art made from the earth.
The wood centerpiece of the necklace has four wood ‘swords’ measuring from 58 to 76mm in length and at their widest parts, 6 to 15mm. The wood oblongs are approximately 17×6mm. Dividing the wood pieces are 3mm wood spacers. Following this grouping, and along both sides of the necklace, are 3mm round Tiger Eye beads followed by three 4mm Silver Needle cube beads, another Tiger Eye bead and then an 8mm bamboo tube. The necklace is finished with a sterling silver trigger clasp. Matching earrings contain the same elements as the necklace and drop from wired, ball end bronze ear wires. (lead free)
The necklace measures 22 3/4" in length including the clasp. Add an additional 3" for the longest wood ‘sword’.
As with any of my designs, I enjoy assembling complimentary materials to bring beauty to the forefront. This necklace set will enhance most anything you choose to wear, in particular work casual and everyday outfits.
