Promenade

Promenade

Promenade is a cool, summery necklace, inspired by this trio of beautiful lampwork glass nuggets with their blue and white tones. I grew up in a typical English seaside town and these beads take me right back to the seafront - they make me think of stripy deckchairs, men's vintage 1920's stripy summer shirts and a breezy stroll along the prom. I've chosen rainbow moonstones with their characteristic blue flash, cool denim-blue kyanite rondelles to compliment the lampwork, along with a selection of cool, blue-toned gemstones including tanzanite, natural chalcedony, blue quartz and more kyanite, and moonstone to create the clusters in this necklace. This necklace is accented with fine and sterling silver headpins and spacer beads, and finished with sterling chain and a silver lobster clasp. It is 18" (45cm) long. I have had this piece hallmarked with my maker's mark, the Birmingham Assay Office mark (anchor) and 925.
