Seashell Thai Silver Handmade Necklace Beach Magnesite Coral Jewelry


When you put on the CORAL SAND AND BLUE SEA handmade necklace, you are instantly transported (at least in your mind) to exotic coral sand beaches and exquisite blue water, maybe to Anquilla or Fiji or your favorite island get-away. This beachy beauty was carefully handmade with a Thai Hill Tribes fine silver seashell pendant, turquoise magnesite, coral magnesite and sterling silver. Definitely a one of a kind (OOAK) piece of glorious beaded jewelry, CORAL SAND AND BLUE SEA will look fabulous on any skin tone, but especially skin that has been kissed a bit by the sun. The necklace was designed and crafted by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.

+ Thai fine silver seashell pendant: app. 20 mm (including bail) x 15 mm x 8 mm
+ Turquoise magnesite tubes: app. 14 mm x 5 mm
+ Coral magnesite rounds: app. 4 mm
+ Metal: fine silver (pendant) and sterling silver
+ Clasp: s-clasp; sterling silver
+ Extender chain: app. 1" / 2.54 cm box chain; sterling silver
+ Length: app. 16" / 40.6 cm - 17" / 43.2 cm
+ Pendant drop: app. 7/8" / 2 cm, including the bail

I love using Thai fine silver handmade pieces whenever I can - they always add such richness to a design. This beautiful seashell is no exception. It is a two-sided puffed design, thicker in the middle than on the edges. As you can see from many of the photos, the seashell has beautiful detail with wonderful ridges and half moons. At the top of the shell is an imprinted flower to add a bit of whimsy. Because the pendant is handmade in a traditional manner, each side is just a little different, something I love about handmade! The silver used is called "fine silver" because pieces can be 99% pure silver, as opposed to sterling silver, which is 92.5% pure silver. For more information about Thai fine silver, please see more information below.

To continue with a beach theme, I decided to use turquoise magnesite tubes and coral magnesite rounds to represent seas and beaches. What a beautiful, fun contrast in colors! Magnesite, in its natural state, is usually an off-white color. Since the gemstone is porous, it can be easily dyed; you can find it in many colors, including the turquoise and coral used in the CORAL SAND AND BLUE SEA necklace. Seven turquoise magnesite tubes were used on each side of the necklace, each framed by 2 mm sterling silver beads. The tubes were then separated by two pieces of the coral magnesite rounds. Five coral magnesite rounds finish the ends of the necklace.

To clasp the CORAL SAND AND BLUE SEA handmade necklace, I chose a sterling silver s-clasp with a lovely design on one side. It was connected to the necklace with sterling silver crimp tubes that were then covered with sterling crimp covers that mimic 3 mm silver beads. To give the necklace some variability in length, a 1" sterling silver extender box chain was crimped to the other side. A coral magnesite rounds was wire wrapped to the end of the chain for a perfect finish.

For a better understanding of the relative size of the Thai pendant and other components used in CORAL SAND AND BLUE SEA, please be sure to check out photo #8 for a size comparison with a dime.

*** The Karen Hill Tribe, living high in the mountains of Thailand (in the Golden Triangle area), use traditional techniques to make their fine silver pieces. Because they live so close to nature, a majority of Hill Tribe designs have nature-inspired or symbolic designs. Fine silver has a higher silver content than sterling silver - it can be up to 99% pure as opposed to sterling silver which is 92.5% pure silver. Because of the higher silver content, fine silver has a beautiful "old" glow to it and does not tarnish as quickly as sterling silver does.

Magnesite is said to help turn dreams into realities; it instills peace during meditation. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

CORAL SAND AND BLUE SEA 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 computer monitors show colors exactly the same. The colors of the stones are extremely close to the actual color on my monitor. They may appear lighter or darker on yours.
