Watermelon Tourmaline Wire Wrapped Necklace with Buddha Pendant
This handcrafted design features healing crystal faceted rondelle gemstone beads of Watermelon Tourmaline (3mm). We created this necklace by first separting the amazing array of colors found in Watermelon Tourmaline into six groups. Starting at the top of the necklace are three Black Tourmaline beads. They are wire wrapped to 4" of Brass chain on one end and 1" on the other. Next we added three varying shades of Green Tourmaline beads. Then shades of Orange Tourmaline, followed by a group of pale pinks, oranges and greens. The second to last group are beautiful shades of light pink while the very last set, closest to the pendant, are gorgeous sahdes of dark pink beads. Please see the photo above depicting a natural piece of Watermelon Tourmaline we labeled to help you sort out the different colors featured in this design and their relationship to a natural specimen. Each group of beads, with the exception of the black at the very top, have 1" of chain in between them and the next set of beads. We took the bottom ends of chain and connected them to a Brass plated Pewter Buddha Pendant. In lieu of a traditional clasp, we chose to make this necklace adjustable by using a Brass Slide Clasp. This 8mm Brass Rondelle has a silicone core that allows the chain to slide through it when gently pulled from either end. In order to prevent the chain from sliding out, we wire wrapped a Pink Tourmaline bead to each end of chain. Overall length of this necklace is around 28", but you are able to adjust the 4" section of chain at the top of each end to 20" in length. You may be able to wear it as a bracelet as well by wrapping the necklace around your wrist three to four times, but we cannot guarantee this as hand and wrist sizes vary. This necklace will be delivered on our signature necklace tag, in a custom handcrafted box .
