And so the story...
It all starts with ten huge; I mean big, natural fluorite beads in various shades of blue-green. Visualize the beautiful Caribbean when you are gazing into a deep area of that gorgeous water. Ten fluorite beads, each measuring about an inch in size are simply mesmerizing. In case you wondered, fluorite gets its name from the fact that the gem material is fluorescent under a black light. There a piece of trivia that just might help you when playing Cash Cab the next time you are in NYC. Aquamarine polished nuggets sprinkled throughout are a smashing complement. Layers of Czech “sea glass” beads in various finishes, shapes and colors mix with Czech glass pearls ranging in size from 6mm to 12mm in ivory and silver-grey. This signature look comes together with a comfortable and easy to use sterling silver clasp shown below. Wear it loose and easy or softly twist it once for a closer to the neck look.
I must say, this necklace feels so good on – smooth with substantial weight. Another Shirley Schmidt design – yes, the character from Boston Legal. She would have loved this piece and would have worn it well. Oh, and how about the Claire Meade character in Ugly Betty? And, a more current look would be the Paige character of Royal Pains. Just want to add one more to the list. This look seems to work for The First Lady (yes, Mrs. Obama) which makes me think it'll work for you. In the meantime, how about you? I’m thinking you will do this beauty justice. 18 ½” in length.
