Description

A thin, hammer formed vertical bar necklace with subtle rustic texture, featuring a small luminous green trade glass bead. Dangles from a diamond cut sterling silver chain.

The design is casual and minimalist, centering on the simplicity of the silver bar and the pop of color that the glass brings. Worn alone or layered with other necklaces, it has an effortless look and feel about it.

This necklace is made to order, the one in the photos is sold and yours will be created just for you with it’s own unique trade glass bead, in your choice of chain length.

THE DETAILS

-Solid sterling silver bar is hand hammer formed and features a very subtle rustic surface texture from the forming.

-A recycled trade glass bead is mounted on the silver bar, held in place by the flared ends of the bar.

-Recycled/Trade glass is semi-round in shape and a soft leaf green in color with a raw tumbled surface texture. Some have surface inclusions and all are translucent (light can pass through).

-I will choose a trade glass bead from my collection to create your bespoke necklace. Each one is unique and they are all beautiful.

-Trade glass beads vary slightly in shape and size but are all semi-round and average 7mm (1/4″) in size.

-Silver bar is 28mm (1 1/8″) length (not including top loop which adds 1/8″), 3mm wide at flared ends, 2mm wide at center.

-Choose your desired chain length from the first drop down menu. (Necklace in photos is 18″ 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.

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.
