Large, smooth, new jade nugget beads are spaced with corrugated gold plated spacer beads on the front of this gemstone necklace while the back is composed of smooth round new jades beads hand knotted by me on jade color silk thread. A gold plated cherry blossom toggle clasp decorates the back, is easy to fasten and looks oh so stunning.
I was influenced to make this piece after a recent visit to the Smithsonian Freer and Sackler collections of Asian art in Washington DC. I think this would make a beautiful addition to any jewelry collection.
17 1/2 inches (44.5cm) in length with jade nuggets that range in size from 1-2cm and are irregular in shape. 6mm round new jade beads and small gold plated spacer beads. Gold plated toggle ring is approximately 1 inch (2.5cm) and the bar side of the clasp is approximately 1 1/2 inch (3.5cm) long. Jade beads exhibit natural veining, opaque mottling and some specs of dark occlusions.
