The Times Necklace – Art Glass, Gemstones, and Sterling Silver
What is black and white and re[a]d all over? A newspaper, of course; which inspired the name of this piece, The Times Necklace.
Handmade glass artistry is evident in the opaque black and white glass beads. The dot-dash design on each bead is executed by dripping molten glass onto the glass core while it is spinning.
The pop of colour comes from red coral beads which have natural holes and inclusions. The whole dot-dash theme is repeated with the .925 solid sterling silver beads I carefully chose to give heft to the necklace. The sterling silver hook closure is enhanced with a tiny genuine Moonstone and is a breeze to put on.
Go out there and show them you are the headline.
A classic color combination like this is perfect for taking the ordinary white shirt, black slacks or jeans outfit to the level of Wow! Add a pair of red shoes and let the strutting begin!
The coral beads must be treated with love. Do not get them wet! If the silver needs polishing, use a treated cloth, not anything that requires soaking the necklace.
