Length: Approximately 20.5 inches plus 2.5 inch chain extender.
This beautiful necklace is part of the Divine Beadworks themes from nature collection, new for 2017. The large blue colored beads are hand-crafted pressed glass from the Czech Republic, featuring a dragonfly design. Glass making in the Czech Republic is an age old cottage industry. These beads are still made in small quantities by hand. Due to the way the glass is made, there may be slight color variation from one bead to the next. The beads in this piece have a Picasso finish, which compliments the blue coloring.
The pressed glass beads are combined with faceted 2 mm glass fire-polished bead, also made in the Czech Republic. The lobster-claw clasp is made from a zinc alloy based pewter and has a heart motif. The chain extender supports a brass dragonfly charm.
The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life. The traditional association of Dragonflies with water also gives rise to this meaning to this amazing insect. The Dragonfly’s scurrying flight across water represents an act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life.
This necklace is strung on a high quality, 49 strand, nylon coated beading wire. It has been double crimped for added security.
