3 chunky blue glazed ceramic squares
+ 3 substantial artisanal silver tubes
= 1 fortuitous meeting
The scale, smooth finish and soft rounded corners of the blue ceramic squares have met their match with the visual heft, irregular surface, and wire-like concept of the silver tube beads, which constitute the focal pendant of this lariat style necklace.
In addition, small blue and silver beads which echo their colours are grouped in shapes of different sizes and arranged asymmetrically along the circular lariat opening. They also finish the tips of the “tails”, adding visual length without additional weight.
The pull of gravity is key in holding this necklace together. The underpinnings which support the wiry artisanal silver beads and hold the pendant in place are spherical silver beads, which are barely visible when the necklace is worn. The top silver bead can slide freely and can be used for fidgeting if you feel so inclined.
The necklace slips easily over your head, so there is no need to fuss with a clasp.
Due its impressive visual size, this pendant works well on larger/longer shirts or sweaters, and with tunics and dresses.
The combination of these two contrasting types of beads is striking as well as intriguing. This necklace will “pump up the (visual) volume” of your outfits. It will add pizazz across all aspects of your style spectrum from casual to cocktail, and will be a valuable addition to your wardrobe.
This necklace is the star of the show wherever it goes. Make a confident and dramatic entrance with this exclusive necklace, which is designed and hand made by me.
+ Your necklace will come nicely wrapped in a gift box.
