Chunky Chrysoprase Pendant Long Boho Style Layering Necklace








Love, Love, Love this Minty Green Chrysoprase Stone. I believe it's one of the IN colors this year. I wired it with antiqued silver stainless steel wire in a "messy" style and hung from a 30 inch antiqued silver plated brass large link chain. This necklace does not have a clasp and is designed, at 30 inches of chain, to slip right over the head. I wired the pendant to an antiqued silver 25mm hammered ring. The pendant/ring hangs about 2.5 inches from the chain. Do let me know if you need any adjustments.

I have four of these chunky stones available in a similar 1.25 inch tall size, ranging in tonality and slightly in size. See more pictures on my Etsy site. Choose Top, Middle, or Bottom, as available.
