Chunky denim lapis statement necklace made with 30 x 20mm blue ovals separated by jade. I used 14mm ocean blue faceted jade beads framed with 3mm silver plated beads and Tibetan silver bead caps on the longest strand. On the shortest strand I used 10mm ocean blue jade rondelle discs to frame the jade beads and 3mm silver plated rounds for a very unique look. The short strand is 20 1/2 inches long and the longest strand is about 23 3/4 inches. It is finished with bright shiny large oval link chain and a large silver plated heart lobster clasp.
