Black Pearl Beaded Necklace with Mermaid Pendant
This handcrafted necklace features healing crystal beads of stunning Freshwater Black Pearls in both rice and potato shapes. Black Pearls, also known as Tahitian Pearls, are named after the French Polynesian Islands where they were originally discovered. They are naturally created by the black-lipped oyster, hence their color and name. The Pearls in this necklace are not wild-caught, but cultured, meaning human intervention helps the black-lipped oyster get the Pearl making process started. While they may be called Black Pearls, they are not actually black. They are actually a dark gray color, with overtones of iridescent blue, green or purple. The focal of the necklace is the mysterious and enchanting Pewter Mermaid Pendant. She is often referred to as the "angel of the sea" and offers her guidance and protection. In addition, she is connected to the Water Element and the Moon serving as a reminder to accept our emotions as they come and to connect with our inner Mermaid to trust our internal compass, our intuition. Alongside the pendant are a trio of rice shaped Black Pearl Beads that are approximately 5mm long. They are followed by Black Pearl potato shaped beads that range from 6-7mm in diameter. Pearls labeled potato shaped are semi-round but not perfectly smooth like traditional beads. Instead they have parallel striations around the center of the Pearl making each one unique! The beaded portion of this necklace is 10" in length and was attached to 4" of fine Stainless-Steel chain on each end, with a lobster clasp closure. The overall length as pictured is 18", but other lengths are available to choose from. This necklace will be delivered on our signature necklace tag, in a custom handcrafted box.
