Handmade necklaces are incomparable works of wearable art. Each one is unique in shape, color, size and design. Artisans from across the globe offer their own distinctive style of craftsmanship. In India, the vibrant colored gemstones have become a signature fashion statement. Balinese jewelry is characterized by ornate sterling tendrils set with tiny silver spheres. In Brazil, womens necklaces are often sleek and contemporary, with gemstones chosen for their particular energies. Many jewelry designs from Bali and Central America feature hand-knotted macram, such as that used in Guatemalas popular friendship bracelets. Handmade finishes may show variations in metal patterns. No two natural gemstones share the same characteristics. Each necklace holds its own individualistic sense of beauty, making it evident that it was crafted by hand. Some even bear the artisans signature.
Sustainable necklaces are designed with reusable materials, and each culture makes use of the objects and materials most readily at hand. For example, many Andean, Central American and Thai artists use repurposed wood. West African artisans use recycled paper, and beads of recycled glass or plastic. In Thailand, Mexico and Bali, coconut shells are often used. Indian artists sometimes repurpose silk from saris. And Brazilian artists collect discarded zippers and soda pop-tops to crochet into stunning, eco-friendly designs.
Many artisans the world over work in lost wax. They sculpt the image they want in wax, encase it in a mold, and pour molten silver or gold into it. The wax melts and flows out, leaving only the precious metal. However some artisans in Peru specialize in handmade silver and gold filigree, and some Balinese necklaces feature chains that are handwoven from slender metal strands. Karen hill tribe artisans in Thailand often use manual tools to stamp decorative motifs on fine silver. Other techniques include macram, beaded or gemstone strands, hammered metals, and carved wood or bone.
Womens necklaces are versatile and come in many styles and lengths. They can be layered or worn alone as a statement piece. Many designs go with everything from jeans to office wear or an evening out on the town. The best thing about jewelry is that its a customizable form of expression that provides a sense of luxury and individuality.
When assessing the workmanship of a necklace, its helpful to pay attention to certain characteristics. For example, quality necklaces are balanced designs that rest comfortably around the neck. Clasps are secure and work well, and gemstones and beads are properly set. The precious metals should be nicely finished, and beads should not be too tightly strung. Well-made necklaces reflect excellent craftsmanship and attractive materials.
Each culture celebrates its rich jewelry-making history through specific symbols and styles. For example, traditional West African beads, which adorn many necklaces from the region, each have a story and a specific occasion when they are worn. Others may feature the Ghanian adinkra symbols, which convey popular wisdom. In ancient Andean civilizations, the leaders apparel and jewelry showed their rank and also incorporated religious symbols. Similarly, necklaces from Bali often depict deities from the Hindu pantheon. In India, a womans jewelry is linked to her status in society and may depict Hindu gods as well as mantra symbols such as the omkara, the root of all sounds and the emblem of the Most High. Angel necklaces and harmony ball necklaces are often worn by pregnant women in Bali and in Mexico. The pendant makes a delicate bell sound, thought to soothe the mother and the baby she is carrying. Some believe it summons a guardian angel, thus making it a symbol of loving protection.

Light and Delicate
I love this necklace. It is so light on the neck. It is true to the picture. Full of colors that will match almost anything you want to wear from blouse to sweater. Each little loop is well connected to the next loop and the next stone. The colors of these gemstones are well matched and hang very nicely.
Wow was all I could say!
I have never seen such a beautiful and mystical Tigers eye! This particular natural stones Africa Tigers eye necklace somehow reminded me The Ghost and The Darkness movie that was played by the two awesome actors Michael Douglas and Val Kilmer. I could not thank you enough to the Ghana Artist for such a magnificent art.

The Tiger Eye Necklace
Whatever its style, the tiger eye necklace is always beautiful. The golden brown stone possesses a unique characteristic called chatoyancy, that is, a changeable luster or color with an undulating narrow band of white light. It is not faceted, but polished to showcase this beautiful feature of the natural gem.
The stone is perfect in sleek contemporary necklaces. But it is just as lovely in the opulent tiger's eye bracelet, ornate ankle bracelets from India and dangle earrings from Peru. Ghana's Jacob Nogor pairs tiger eye with colorful African beads and Brazil's Telma Camargo de Araujo takes inspiration from cave art for some of her designs.
Novica presents tiger's eye necklaces from talented artisans and traditional silversmiths throughout the globe. A favorite stone of Thai designer, Busarin, the gem appears in her flower earrings and elegant tigers eye necklaces with dream catcher pendants. Our Tiger Eye Necklace Collection features primarily sterling silver settings with tigers eye accents in a variety of types and styles, including chokers, pendant necklaces, strands and Y necklaces. We hope you enjoy them!
