Long Beaded Necklace of Colorful Gemstones and Vintage Glass, Multi Colored Stones, Hippie Layering Chain, Bohemian Fashion


Shipping to United States: $2.50

A long beaded necklace with a glint from faceted vintage antique gold tube beads between 4 mm gemstones in a delightfut mix of colors. The colors of the rainbow in my custom mixture of agates, quartz and other stones are a feature of my Tapestry Series. This long chain closes with a gun metal colored brass lobster clasp, and can be worn long, layered, or wrapped around the wrist. Channel your inner Hippie or flash a bit of your Bohemian flair with a piece from my "Tapestry Series!"

I love gemstone beads and am always on the hunt for them. Last summer, I stepped back and realized what a wonderful collection I had gathered with so many shades and colors, in quartz, agates, jaspers and many other varieties, all between 3 and 4 mm in size. I began to experiment with ways to use custom mixtures of these, that I mix myself, in a series of pieces that I've named the "Tapestry Series." A limited edition of pieces because the other find, the wonderful vintage faceted tubes that space each gemstone bead, are not made anymore. Your piece is made to order and this necklace coordinates perfectly with this cuff https://www.etsy.com/listing/111136084/jewel-tones-multi-gemstone-beaded made with similar materials. These earrings https://www.etsy.com/listing/116769586/bright-beaded-hoop-earrings-sterling could also be added to complete the look.

Between 36 and 37" total length, can be worn long, layered, cascading and even wound on the wrist. Closes with a shiny gun metal lobster clasp and ring.

I love long chains and just added a new collection of versatile beaded chains, (examples in photos) you can explore here-

I hand mix a rich collection of different stones and different colors and then use them in random mixtures, balanced to include a full spectrum of colors. Each necklace has a slightly different mix so will be unique but all will have a similar feeling. Your piece is made to order so if you choose to order more than one part of a set together, I will take care to coordinate the stone mixtures.

This is a limited edition WillOaks Studio original design.

Packaged in a velvet pouch for storing and for gifting.

Lovely necklace. This is #4 for me. I attached them all together to get a multi strand necklace. Lot of complements on this.

So pretty. Thanks so much. I bought two and have now ordered a third.

As with the first necklace I received as a gift, the workmanship on this is lovely, as are the colors of the stones. Thank you so much!

Very pretty. Goes with everything!

Very beautiful design! Thank you for an easy transaction!
