The Moss Spirit - $115
So often, we focus on the beauty of trees and forget the humbler flora. This necklace is dedicated to moss, lichen, and other subtle plants. I imagine it adorning a dryad-like woman, she who watches over the moss. Varying shades of olivine are drawn together for a stunning, earthy necklace. Along with three colors of Japanese seed beads, this necklace contains Czech glass; Swarovski crystals; vintage glass beads; freshwater pearls; and a large, roughly-faceted green garnet focal. This would be the perfect accent for a Renaissance Faire costume, as long as it has a very plunging neckline!
I call this style of necklace a "strand collage" as each strand coordinates with the other to make a cohesive whole. The woven base is meant to be worn choker-tight against the neck, and the lower strands may be worn neatly cascading, or artfully tangled. It looks far more stunning on than in the picture!
The Moss Spirit is adjustable from 13-14 1/2" long. The accent strands range from 14"-23" when worn at the shortest length, and the focal measures 1 1/2" long. It fastens securely with a button-and-loop clasp which features a modern Czech glass reproduction of a vintage button, olivine with bronze accents. This button does have a metal shank.
