Coral Necklace with Ebony Drops
Wood & Stone Necklace
Created by Suzanne Linquist
This coral necklace with ebony drops is put on over the head, then adjusted with the silver disk clasp to between 32 and 36 inches in length including the drops. The coral beads are dyed bamboo coral, a plentiful coral found in all oceans. Bamboo coral is porous and absorbs dye deeply. The red is permanent. The drops at the end of this necklace are lathe-turned ebony inlaid with silver - the whole then polished to a high luster. The sphere is .75 inches in diameter, the cone is 2.5 inches long. They moved freely at the end of the necklace.
