Blue Floral Enamel Necklace

Blue Floral Enamel Necklace


(KH19-02) Artist: Kara Hickey, Massachusetts. Every flower-lover in New England knows the bluets: tiny, light blue flowers that grow in large patches near roadsides early in spring. The artist has created a wonderful homage to this delicate spring flower through the Cloisonné process. The chain is handmade and boasts blue onyx and labradorite stones. The artist uses a magnetic clasp (as opposed to those tedious lobster-claw clasps), strong and easy to use, even without assistance! Price includes shipping and handling within the USA. Please contact us for shipping outside the USA.
