This short necklace measures 16" and is perfect for higher necklines. I created this necklace by selecting an awesome gold-plated blue druzy slice, and painstakingly hand wire-wrapping an entire chain with 14 karat gold-filled wire. Gold-filled means that the wire has a much thicker, fused layer of 14k gold than gold-plated wire; by contrast, the very thin layer of gold can flake off of gold-plated wire and findings easily. I chose bright blue, top-quality genuine lapis lazuli beads and gold-coated pyrite beads to complement the colors of the pendant, and neatly wrapped them in an alternating pattern. I finished the necklace with a 14k gold-filled clasp and jump ring. I love the look of blue and gold together, and the pyrite adds sparkle to this classic color combo!
