Grey Green Lampwork Glass and Gemstone Bead Necklace ~Valleys of Green & Grey~
This statement necklace features a set of borosilicate glass beads in soft, muted greens, blues and greys, colours reminiscent of the landscape in the north of England. Clusters of little faceted gemstone beads echo the colours in the glass: labradorite, aquamarine, moss aquamarine and green apatite, each stone individually wired on its own silver headpin. The necklace also features some larger gemstone beads: milky aquamarine, steel blue kyanite and grey labradorite, with its characteristic blue-green flash, all interspersed with sterling silver spacer beads.
The necklace is strung on 49 strand beading wire and closes with a handmade sterling silver toggle clasp.
The necklace measures 48cm (19"). It has been hallmarked by the Birmingham Assay Office in accordance with UK law for the sale of precious metals.
