Purple Pearls Layered Necklace, Beadwork Bib in Deep Royal Purple, Dark Amethyst Purple Long Necklace, Handmade Artisan Original


Shipping to United States: Free

The deepest shades of royal purple in pearls, mother of pearl and stone beads become multiple strands of a long, complex, layered bib necklace with silver accents. Several shapes and sizes create different rhythms along each strand with silver counterpoints mixed in to become an outstanding original show stopper for purple lovers.

I confess it took several years of collecting to eventually assemble enough elements in this rich royal shade. And though my camera seems to struggle with the color purple, the strand of mother of pearl marquis on the longest layer are the same color seen in person as the various pearls and other beads as the shorter two beaded strands. I would say this purple leans just a bit towards a red side and less to the blue side. But the total effect is dead center unabashed purple.

The necklace is 27" long and can be worn shorter as the spring clasp can catch any link on the chain. The bib drops 2" measured in the center front.

Very limited edition of 3 necklaces, one is made and is ready to mail in my signature packaging all ready to gift or to keep.
