A stunning statement bib necklace of moss green freshwater pearls on an artisan hand made pure silk ribbon. Varied sizes and variations on the color of mosses and lichens, this pearl collection has the essence of a walk in the woods.
Four strands of top drilled pearls with graduated sterling beads connect to hammered small oval rings of silver plated steel. An artisan dyed and handmade silk ribbon in a charcoal gray makes the length you wear this necklace easily adjustable from choker to opera length, to be worn with a bow or a knot, as you like it.
When I found this batch of pearls, I was reminded of some of the mosses and lichens I would study in the Alaskan wilderness while I lived up there, especially in tundra terrain where mossy hillocks looked like textured, velvety mounds. Or of the way a small patch of woodland could offer such a rich variety of earthy green colors through the collection of mosses and lichens that would grow there.
The pearl focal point measures 8 1/2" long including the rings, and drops just over 1 1/2" in the front. The dyed freshwater pearls range in size from 12 x 8 mm to 8 x 6 mm, and there is variation in the way different pearls have taken the dye, which adds a rich depth to the coloration and textural quality of this cluster of pearls. The ribbon and hoop design provide adjustable lengths so this bib can be worn to complement many different necklines. I imagine this pearl necklace as a lovely complement to business or casual apparel, worn ascot style at the throat under a shirt or suit coat, or draped over a knit top or sweater.
Find your own favorite style as the ribbon is 42" long so paired with the handmade pearl focal point, can be worn many different ways. Take a peek at this listing to see different lengths to wear this design http://www.etsy.com/listing/81668781/pearl-cluster-bib-in-lavender-bronze-on
