Shell Pendant with Candy Jade, Howlite and Olivine on Leather
This style of necklace is an original design from 15 years ago that includes shells, gemstones and leather and it was so popular, I decided to bring it back for a season. While I don't often make jewelry with leather, there's something about it that is rustic, yet elegant, especially combined with a beach feel.
Overall length is 17.5", which doesn't include the Mother-of -Pearl shell pendant drop of 2.25". The clasp and rings are sterling silver, while the gemstone assortment includes candy jade, howlite and olivine. Genuine cowhide leather is used for the double strand necklace.
Because of the organic nature of gemstones, each bead shows much variation based on cut and the strand it originates from. The stones you see in the photo may vary slightly in color shade and striations from what you receive.
