Ivory Cross Pendant Christian Necklace Etched Vintage Lucite, Brown & Black Tribal Beads
For this inspirational necklace, we dropped a chunky carved cross pendant from a strand of mixed trade beads, each handmade in primitive style and earthy colors.
The rustic palette of off-white, brown and black, the tribal markings, and an extra long adjustable copper chain make this one of a kind piece ideal for both women and men who prefer a unique bohemian approach to a Christian statement, and authentically handcrafted jewelry.
The cross is ivory cream vintage Lucite, etched faux bone, with both sides presenting a floral starburst (or perhaps a sunburst) centered within an abstract stitched-look square and embraced by squiggles on the top, cross pieces and bottom.
The handcrafted beads from include hand painted wood and glass, carved bone and antique copper. To connect the beaded front to the chain, we added hand forged hammered copper washer rings, linked with jump rings to a pair of creamy lucite donuts which add interest and character to the transition. The solid copper rolo chain is held by a forged hook and eye clasp.
- Approximate dimensions:
- The length is adjustable up to 27 inches - opera necklace
- The cross is 7/8" high and wide and about 3/16" thick at the puffed center.
- Including a copper bead and 2 small bone rondelles above the cross, the pendant is approximately 1 5/8" long overall.
Note: While this unisex bohemian necklace will always be in fashion, it will make a handsome addition to a trendy layered look.
