A unusual, dramatic, timeless, and elegant statement necklace.

Looks great with almost everything: tank top or t-shirt and jeans, business suit, cocktail dress, evening dress, you name it.

Made with meticulous attention to detail, one jump ring at a time.

Lightweight for its size (62 grams / 2.1 oz. /  0.13 lb. )

Adorned with Swarovski Crystal Pearls which are “perfect replica(s) of genuine pearls. They are similar in weight and behaviour, adjust to the temperature of the skin and are resistant to rubbing, scratching, perfume, perspiration and UV light. Above all, they are the first pearls in the world with a crystal core and an innovative, silky smooth pearl coating.” ( Source: http://www.create-your-style.com/Content.Node/swarovski-elements/Crystal-Pearls.en.php )

An original design by joyz*k from Angelica Brigade.

*******************************

IMPORTANT:
Each Swarovski Crystal Pearl has two (2) tiny (pin-sized) DRILL HOLES on them.

> > > Please look at pictures closely and see whether the drill holes makes you like the necklace less < < <

{ For example, on pic #1, the visible drill holes are on the 4th pearl from the left and the 2nd pearl from the right }

But . . . I love how the gleaming crystal pearls look with the chain. Plus, the people who saw me wearing this necklace do not notice the drill holes because they are hidden from view by the handmade chain. So, I decided to go ahead and create this necklace.

Currently, I’m in the process of researching and sourcing some materials (gemstones, crystals, handmade polymer clay beads) that can be good substitutes to the Swarovski crystal pearls.

Please see picture #1 closely and you can see those drill holes: one on the 4th pearl from the left & one on the 2nd pearl from the right.
