Blue Nile Necklace and Earrings Set
I know, I know. Why did I name this black piece blue? Because it is.
The large rounds are a rare blue tiger’s eye. The camera simply cannot catch the way they gleam in a midnight blue color when the light strikes them just so. Such unusual stones were needed to set off the talent of Laurel Mountain artist, Melissa Blanton, who created the art glass beads.
This necklace is laden with beautiful sterling silver; from the striking bead caps that cup each tiger’s eye round, to the powerful sterling silver slide clasp. The main focal is of midnight glass with an abstract raku design of colors that overlap each other creating a palette of yellow, blue, taupe, pink, green and purple, finished with clear glass dots for texture.
The art glass discs contain tiny specks of the same raku colors encased in clear glass. So you’ll be wearing the art work of three different artists, counting mother nature!
The necklace is about 17" long; the focal should sit just below the notch at the base of the neck. The earrings dangle 1" from the base of the sterling silver lever back pierced earrings. Earrings are on sterling silver lever-close wires.
This is a statement piece for sure. Wear it with a solid colored top or one that has only a subtle pattern so the necklace takes center stage, where it belongs! It will go with any color outfit. Any time, any where. Gotta love that.
