This necklace is a wonderful, handcrafted piece that can be worn with so many things. It is called Blue Clove and is a wonderful piece to wear.
The primary stones in the piece are Lapis Lazuli. The blue of lapis lazuli is such a lovely blue that is will coordinate with so many other colors. It's kind of like wearing blue jeans, they work with everything! There are also Cultured Freshwater Pearls that are all grey and of varying sizes. There is also Aventurine. Those are the lovely green and brownish colored stones. The small red stones are Carnelian, which is a lovely semi-precious stone that is the color of red. It is quiet and not in your face red, that accents the other colors beautifully. All of the colors on this necklace work so well together and make a wonderful statement.
Each and every piece is carefully hand knotted in place. There are stainless steel accent pieces holding specific beads at wonderful angles to show them off in the design like branches from a vine, and offer a beautiful floral design without being overly floral.
The artist of this piece is Sasina Leerasawatdiampon, who is one of Novica's featured artisans from Thailand. I love how Novica works with artisans in third world countries, helping them develop their talents and to share the products around the world.
This piece came with a lovely cloth gift bag and a small booklet telling you about the piece and the artisan who made it. I enjoy learning about an artisan like this. It gives the piece a more personal feeling for me.
I highly recommend this piece to you. It is something you can wear with a number of outfits. It sits so well at the base of your neck and does not twist or turn. It works well with casual to dressed up outfits and can go with so many different colors of clothing.
