Faceted cobalt blue jade statement necklace. This southwestern style necklace is made with stunning 27mm hammered Tibetan silver metal leaves with a little twist for a different kind of look. The leaves are framed with 12mm faceted cobalt jade bead rondelles. In between the two strands of beads I used a length of bright silver large oval link chain for contrasting texture.
The shortest strand is about 20 inches, the chain strand is about 21 3/4 inches and the longest strand is about 24 inches. It is finished with a Tibetan silver plated "S" clasp. This southwestern style necklace is so very unique and dramatic with the stark contrast in colors. This would look fantastic on a sweater or turtleneck top.
