Back to the jewellery...
This necklace is made of my white heart beads. They have a white core wrapped with a band of transparent pinkish-mauve and the beads have been tumble-etched to a soft matt finish which gives them a wonderful glow.
The metal links are made with wire that has an antique copper finish. I cannot say that the metal components are nickel free (although I'm pretty sure they are nickel compliant due to laws) because I simply do not know if they are. Some jewellery findings suppliers do not state exactly what the metal is; they just say 'plated' or 'antique finish'. I've had these particluar findings in my stash for years but if I had to guess I would say that the metals here are copper and maybe a touch of brass.
The necklace measures just over 19 inches when unfastened. It does up with a lobster clasp.
The glass beads measure about 9.5mm diameter.
All glass beads are kiln annealed.
Presented in a cotton gift bag.
Note: Although I have captured the beads' colours as best as I can, different screen and monitor settings vary and as such the colours of the beads may appear slightly different in real life than they do on your computer or device. In particular, Apple devices tend to ramp up the reds so please bear this in mind when viewing beads that are red, pink, purple etc.
