About this design:

I made this beautiful necklace using chunky rectangle new jade beads and 3 hand hammered sterling silver links. I individually wrapped each bead securely and meticulously with sterling silver wire to form a chain. The chain is finished with a hand crafted sterling silver clasp. The different sizes and textures of each bead adds an elegant element to this one of a kind necklace. This long necklace can be worn doubled as a choker


Sterling Silver, New Jade
