Carved Mother of Pearl Pendant with Rainbow Moonstone
This hand-carved Mother of Pearl pendant looks so pretty with the faceted rainbow moonstone beads. The carving is of a flower with leaves and two paisley shapes, and each side has the same design.
This necklace has been hand-knotted - there is a tiny knot between each gemstone that no only protects the stones from chipping by creating a bit of space, but it flows beautifully, moving freely, not stiff like wire cables used in most of the beaded necklace on the market. This silk is strong and of the very best quality on the market.
I've made this necklace 16.5 inches in length and used sterling silver components, including the clasp and my signature tag.
The moonstones are roundel shaped and measure about 4 x 2.5mm, and the pendant measures approximately 27x 21 mm and is roughly 4.25mm thick.
