I recently learned that a "Wood-Teal" is a rare migratory bird in New Zealand. As my friend and fellow jewelry designer Betsy suggested, why not use the name for this unusual necklace, replendent in bold, chunky beads of richly veined wood and ceramic glazed in a vivid teal? (Unlike the bird, though, this necklace is not rare. I have plenty more of these teal and wood beads, so if you'd like a custom design, let me know! I will probably add complementary bracelet and earrings to my store soon.)

The beads in this necklace are even more gorgeous in person..it's a stunning combination. The wood beads are about 15 by 10 mm, and the chunky handmade ceramic beads are about 17 by 13 but both beads are irregular enough for some size variation. Accompanying these larger beads are 8 mm rounds of tiger iron and 4 mm rondelles of deep teal Czech glass. Tiger iron is a gemstone containing tigereye, hematite and jasper and complement the wood beads quite well. This necklace has a length of about 19 1/2 inches, and closes with a handcrafted copper and tiger iron hook and eye clasp, elegantly crimped at the ends with copper and Czech glass. The natural copper is untreated, appearing shiny in the photos. It will soon age to a darker, burnished finish which will complement this dramatic necklace all the more!

Like all my jewelry, this necklace will arrive in one of my gift boxes of textured ivory recycled paper with a custom tag describing materials and handcrafted elements
