Light blue versatile necklace

I love the look of long necklaces that are versatile.

Wear it long or double it and make two strands.

Necklace laying flat to see the beads

This one is summery with light blue pearl beads, silver lined #6 seed beads and faceted purple crystals.

This necklace is 42 inches long.

I make earrings to match and sell them as a set.

  • Kathy, I love versatile jewelry like this – it’s always great to have options, especially if you’re traveling and have only a few pieces with you. Beautiful color palette here, with the light blue! And would this necklace also work well as a bracelet wrap, or would that feel like too much to wear on the wrist?

  • Kathy Zee says:

    Rena, I don’t see why it could not be worn as a bracelet wrap. There is a lobster clasp on it so I tried it on and it wrapped abound 5 times. Looked so pretty. So yes, it could be also a bracelet. Thanks for the idea!

  • Beautiful piece, Kathy! I love the colors too. If I make an extra long necklace with the intention of wearing it single or doubled, I usually try to make it a length which will allow it to be worn as a bracelet as well. That versatility makes a great selling feature. Thanks for including the second photo too. I always like it when the entire piece, including the clasp, is shown.

  • Claudia, I love making these long necklaces that can be worn in different ways. I will try to include other pictures when I post things. I appreciate the suggestion.
