A simple, beautiful translucent sea green glass bead is the focus of this pretty pendant necklace. These are African Trade Glass beads and each one is unique and different. They average 12mm in diameter and are round/cylindrical in shape.
Custom sized to your desired length, simply select your necklace length from the drop menu.
**PLEASE NOTE** read below for necklace length guide and message me if you have any questions at all.
This particular kind of trade glass bead is traditionally (though not always) created from recycled glass, sometimes sea glass, that is heated to a molten state and then rolled around a metal rod to create the hole and bead shape then allowed to cool and harden once again.
The bead is wrapped in solid copper, starting with a spiral at the bottom, which wraps around the bead to the top loop. It dangles from a solid copper chain with a hammered copper clasp.
*Please note* My copper jewelry is made of solid copper which will darken and patina over time. These pieces are polished but not lacquered, which makes them easy to clean but means they will darken more quickly. For some wearers, copper will leave a temporary green mark on your skin. It washes off with soap and water, and is harmless. If you have any questions about caring for copper or wearing copper, please feel free to message me before purchase.
**Necklace Length Guidelines**
If you already know your desired necklace length, simply select it from the drop down menu. Sizes are listed by the inch. If you would like an in between size (example 18 1/2") please select the closest size from the menu and then leave me a note at checkout requesting the size. I will accommodate the size request as closely as possible.
If you don't know what length you need, here's how to measure to get the proper size. Take a flexible tape measure and drape it around your neck at the length you want the necklace to lay. The measurement where the two ends meet is your necklace length.
If you don't have a tape measure handy, you can use a string and a flat ruler. Simply drape the string around your neck in the same way as you would with a tape measure. Pinch the string on each end where the two ends meet, and then place that section of string against a flat ruler to get your measurement.
You can also measure the length of a necklace you own that fits how you like in order to get your measurement, but if you choose this method please try to measure a necklace that is of a similar style to this one or at least is designed to lay the same way. Different necklace styles can fit very differently even if they are the same length measured end to end.
That's it! Then choose your necklace measurement from the drop down menu and I will create your necklace to your desired length.
If you have any questions at all about sizing, or you don't see your size listed in the drop menu, please message me. I'm happy to help!
