Green Trade Glass Rose Gold Spiral Pendant Necklace - Recycled Glass - 14k Rose Gold Filled - Spiral Design - African Trade Glass

$40.50 $45.00


A luminous aqua sea green trade glass ball, mounted in a hand formed spiral setting of 14k rose gold filled. Dangling from a 14k rose gold filled chain.

The design is simple and casual, centering on the beauty of the texture of the glass and the soft diffused glow that is seen when light that passes through it. Hand formed spiral setting adds a touch of old world rustic beauty.

The trade glass used for this design is semi-round spherical in shape and is a soft aqua green in color, which I like to call "Sea Green". It has a raw tumbled surface texture with some unique surface features, and is translucent (light passes through). Please read below for more info about trade glass.

This necklace is made to order and no two trade glass beads are exactly the same. Yours will be created just for you in your choice of chain length.

ABOUT TRADE GLASS

Trade glass beads are a type of hand formed (usually kiln fired) indigenously produced African bead created from recycled glass, using an age old process that has been around for centuries. It is sourced from sea glass, old medicine bottles, soda bottles and the like. Used as a form of token currency from the 16th-20th centuries, it derives it's name.

The beads I use are produced primarily in Ghana West Africa. They are Fair Trade.

ABOUT GOLD FILLED JEWELRY

Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold, which must constitute at least 5% (1/20) of the item's total weight, mechanically bonded to sterling silver or a base metal (such as jeweler's brass). Gold-filled items are 5 to 10 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 15 to 25 times thicker than gold electroplate, making it much more valuable and longer lasting because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film as on plated jewelry which is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Most gold-filled is 12kt or 14kt gold-filled (I use 14kt for my pieces). Gold-filled does not de-laminate or peel like plated or "dipped" products. It is tarnish resistant and does not tarnish as readily as silver. Many find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. However, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday wear. To clean gold-filled it is best to use mild soap and water.

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.

What is gold filled?

Gold filled jewelry is created using a sheet of solid gold, which must constitute at least 5% (1/20) of the items total weight, which is pressure and heat bonded to a sterling silver or base metal core (such as jeweler's brass).

Creating gold filled materials is a unique and technical process, and only a few mills in the world do this.

Gold filled items are 5-10 times thicker gold layer than regular gold plating and 15-25 times thicker than gold electroplate, making it much more valuable and longer lasting because it is a layer of actual karat gold, not a microscopic film.

Gold filled does not de-laminate or peel like plated or "dipped" pieces, and with proper care it can last for as long as 30 years.

Will my copper jewelry tarnish or turn my skin green?

The copper used in my designs is pure, raw, solid copper. It is not treated, lacquered or coated in any way, so it will darken and develop a patina over time.

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 contact me.

Are your sterling silver pieces solid sterling silver?

Yes, all of my sterling silver jewelry is solid .925 sterling silver.

I also use fine silver elements in some of my designs. Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver.
