Believe Cross Necklace Pearls Lampwork Handmade Christian Jewelry

Details

What a beautiful gift this handmade, one of a kind (OOAK) BELIEVE necklace would make for Easter, Mother's Day, birthdays or for Christmas! Created with a sterling silver "believe" cross, freshwater pearls and turquoise lampwork pebbles, it certainly will add an elegant side to anything it is worn with, from dress up to dress down. This gorgeous piece of Christian beaded jewelry was created by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.

The cross used in BELIEVE is a simple beauty that speaks volumes! The cross was artisan hand-crafted of sterling silver using the lost wax technique. It has been slightly oxidized and then buffed to a warm radiance to bring out the wonderful hand-etched "Believe" across the front and the thin line that runs along the edge of the cross. The backside is flat with evidence of that it is handmade. The cross is much more shiny than the photos lead you to believe.

I have always loved the look of shiny sterling silver with the radiance of pearls, so chose white freshwater pearls to highlight the cross. What amazing luster these pearls have, almost as if they glow on their own! The shape is called "semi-baroque" because they are somewhat oblong, many having a slightly flattened side. This semi-baroque shape gives amazing texture to the necklace as each individual pearl catches the light differently.

Look again at the necklace and you will see what maybe at first glance looks like turquoise is really fabulous turquoise-colored lampwork glass pebbles! Handmade by ArtFire artists beadsandbotanicals (http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/beadsandbotanicals), they give the necklace a slight rustic appeal, especially when combined with the elegance of the pearls. The pebbles have a semi-matte, lava rock finish and were faceted by hand when the glass was still molten. Sterling silver daisy spacers and 2mm beads were used to spotlight the lampwork pebbles and to separate them from the pearls.

To finish BELIEVE, a lovely, flowing sterling silver s-clasp was used. A perfect finish for a gorgeous necklace!

Pearls are used to spread loving vibrations; they also promote sincerity, truth and loyalty. Silver is the metal of love and healing.

Here is the important information for BELIEVE:

Cross: app. 28 mm x 15 mm x 2 mm
Pearls: on average, app. 8 mm x 6 mm
Lampwork glass pebbles: app. 7 mm x 5 mm
Metal: sterling silver
Clasp: s-clasp set; sterling silver
Length: app. 18.5" / 46.9 cm
Pendant drop, including bail: app. 1.25"/3.2 cm

BELIEVE will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals.

If you are looking for that one cross necklace that will elegantly profess your faith, then BELIEVE is the necklace for you. It will make the perfect Easter gift, Mothers Day gift or a "just because" gift! It goes effortlessly from dress up to dress down.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I have been wanting to use the handmade believe cross in a design for some time now. It wasn't until I bought the pearls and the lampwork pebbles that the design seemed to "click". Love the juxtaposition of the shiny sterling cross with the glowing luster of the pearls and the matte, rustic look of the lampwork.

Materials Used

sterling silver cross; freshwater pearls; turquoise lampwork pebbles; sterling silver daisy spacers, 2mm beads, jump rings, crimps, crimp covers and s-clasp

More Info

The BELIEVE necklace was carefully handmade in a pet friendly, smoke free studio (:

An excellent artisan with stellar service - great communication, fast shipping, solid packaging. The Rudraksha seed earrings that I selected are absolutely stunning - more beautiful than the photos were able to capture. Their presentation was lovely too! A nice ribbon-wrapped box held a pretty little gift bag, in which were the earrings carefully wrapped in gorgeous tissue. So impressive! All in all, Catherine of ShadowDogDesigns exemplifies the best of handmade artisans, and everything about this purchase is a testament to the superiority of handmade as a buying choice! Thank you, Catherine - these truly are earrings to cherish for a lifetime!
