A feeling of traditional elegance extends throughout this wonderful necklace I have named "Bird in Tapestry". Cool, blue green turquoise magnesite with warm amber resin and satiny antique brass add a significant depth and uniqueness to this necklace which is complete with it's matching pair of earrings.
The pendant is from Vintaj and features a pheasant surrounded by leaves and branches. Vintaj's signature Natural Brass pieces feature a rich, distinctive caramel brown color similar to vintage brass. The Vintaj process is eco-friendly, enhancing the natural beauty of the brass. The aged green verdigris effect was created by using Vintaj permanent patina ink. Once dry you softly buff the piece so that the design stands out. The pendant is connected to the necklace with an antique brass bail from JBB Findings which is based in Israel and is a leading manufacturing and casting company.
The necklace is blue green turquoise magnesite mixed with amber resin beads. Magnesite is a wonderfully versatile natural stone that is often color enhanced and used to replace the much more expensive turquoise or lapis. It is a strong stone for creative visualization and imagination and is aligned with the heart chakra. Magnesite is an excellent stone to boost your self-esteem. The amber resin is extremely lightweight and has a lovely soft yellow hue with darker amber shades throughout. The amber resin in this necklace is manmade.
For the closure I selected an antique brass toggle produced by TierraCast. The design on both the toggle and the toggle bar contain a lovely flower and leaf design. TierraCast pewter products are only produced in the United States and are guaranteed to be 100% lead free and of the highest craftsmanship. Antique brass wire guards were also used to protect the beading wire from wear. More antique brass beads and spacers are used inbetween the beads.
The length of the necklace is 20 inches or 508 mm in length and the pendant will add an addition 1 ½ inch or 38 mm drop. The set will also include a pair of matching earrings using the same blue green turquoise magnesite and amber resin. The earrings are on hypoallergenic antique brass leverbacks that are produced in the United States. The leverbacks will help prevent loss and keep the earring securely in your ears.

Note: Please be aware that not all monitors will show colors exactly the same. The colors may appear lighter or darker based on the type of monitor you have. As I edit my photos I ensure they are as exact as they can be to my jewelry pieces. Natural and artificial lighting can enhance or diffuse shades of stones and crystals as you wear them. I also use different backgrounds in my photos so that you can see some of the color variance. Enjoy!
