Unique FreeForm Asymmetrical Peyote necklace in Sea Foam Blues

Details

Please read shipping notes before ordering this piece of handmade jewelry.

This asymmetrical, freeform peyote necklace began with three different colored pieces of sea glass from the Bering Sea. I loved the texture, color and shape of each of the pieces. It took weeks to assemble the combination of seed beads, semi precious chips and rondelles, fresh water pearls and Czech glass for this project. I used apatite chips, moonstone and aquamarine rondelles, nine different colors of 6/0, 8/0, 11/0 or 15/0 seed beads in colors from teal to lime green, rice shaped fresh water pearls, two colors of 3mm, Swarovski crystals, Czech glass rounds in sea foam blue with an ab finish and three faceted chalcedony briolettes.

The 20", necklace is closed in the front with a seed bead encrusted sterling silver hook that loops over the tubular section between the first and second pieces of sea glass. The back of the necklace strap is a comfortable tubular cable that sits coolly on the neck.

In addition to personal checks and US Postal Money orders, I accept PayPal. Shipments paid for by check are held until the check clears.

I do not pad my shipping charges but do pass actual costs on to the buyer. ArtFire requires that I pick a number for shipping so I picked the least expensive, slow-boat-to-China rate offered by the United States Postal Service. Secondary shipping charges depend on what else you are purchasing. If you are purchasing more than one item at a time from my studio, please e-mail for shipping charges. If you wish to choose a shipping method other than the USPS to a US address, the cost is more. That said, U.S. or Canadian purchasers may choose the U.S. Postal System, UPS or Fed Ex. but please request a shipping quote before making a purchase.

International purchasers may only use U.S. Global Priority Mail. Costs for Global Priority shipments vary by destination and package weight. Please contact me for a shipping quote before making a purchase. I combine shipping costs automatically.

Insurance is optional but I accept no responsibility for damage to or loss of uninsured shipments.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Please read shipping notes before ordering this piece of handmade jewelry.

I found a basket of sea glass pieces from the Bering Sea in my favorite bead shop, A Better Beads & Crafts. I pawed through the basket playing with the hand feel of the various pieces until I found three in subtly different colored shapes and sizes. Over the next six weeks friends and the shop owner helped me amass a huge pile of various stones, beads and pearls to serve as my palette. Then there was the sketch followed by the stitching. It was the most fun I have had in a month of Sundays.
