Orange Shell Handmade Necklace White Pearls Artisan Gemstone Jewelry


The BELLISIMO! handmade necklace might be sweet and petite, but it is big on style! Created with a graduated orange and white stick shell fan, glowing white freshwater and sterling silver hogan beads and findings, the necklace is perfect to wear whenever you want to feel glamorous - whether with your little black dress or casual blue jeans and white shirt. Gorgeous, one of a kind, gemstone jewelry created for the discerning woman, the Cleopatra style collar necklace was carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs. "BELLISIMO" is Italian for "beautiful."

Shell fan: app. 28 mm (longest) to 10 mm (shortest) x 4 mm
White freshwater pearls: app. 5 mm
Metal: sterling silver
Clasp: sterling silver hook clasp
Length: app. 19.5" / 49.5 cm
Pendant drop: app. 1.25" / 3.2 cm

The graduated stick shell fan is the eye catcher in the BELLISIMO! handmade necklace. It is a lovely orange / pink color shot through with white stripes. As you can see above, each piece of shell is colored a bit differently, some with more stripes than others, some a bit darker, some a bit lighter. The longest shell stick is in the middle and the other shorter sizes radiate out from it. Between each shells tick, a 2 mm sterling silver bead was placed so the Cleopatra style fan hangs beautifully when worn. At each end of the shell fan a sterling silver hogan bead was placed.

To highlight the shell stick fan, glowing white freshwater pearls were chosen. The pearls are not perfectly round but are very close, being more of slight oval. Their luster is amazing, almost like they have their on internal light source. Three groups of nine pearls make up the side and back of the necklace, with each group separated by a sterling hogan beads flanked by 2 mm sterling beads. A grouping of 12 pearls finishes the back of the necklace.

To finish the necklace, a flowing sterling silver toggle clasp set was used. The hook has a wonderful rope design at its base. The clasp set was connected to the necklace with sterling silver wire protectors and then crimped for security. A sterling crimp cover was placed over the crimp to mimic a 3 mm silver bead for a professional finish.

For a better understanding of the relative size of the shell fan and the pearls used to create the BELLISIMO! necklace, please be sure to check out photo #5 for a size comparison with a quarter.

Shells are believed to stimulate intuition, sensitivity, imagination and adaptability. Pearls are used to spread loving vibrations; they promote sincerity, truth and loyalty. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves asĀ others see us.

The BELLISIMO! artisan handmade necklace 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. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!

***Please be aware that not all monitors show colors exactly the same. The colors of the items used to create my jewelry are extremely close to the actual color on my monitor. The colors may appear lighter or darker on your monitor.
