Don't Stop Dancing
This is a striking vintage-inspired statement necklace with a twist: a strand of tiny LED fairy lights is woven into the wirework! The beautifully faceted firepolished glass catches the light in every direction and the photos of this piece really don't do it justice.
The LEDs are powered by a very small battery pack that dangles gently down the back of your collar or can be easily tucked into your hair in an updo. It's very lightweight and everyone who has worn one of these tells me they don't even notice it.
This can be adjusted to any length between 17 and 25 inches; it fits best as a loose choker. Please specify your desired length in a note at checkout and allow 1-2 extra days before your order is shipped so I can adjust it for a perfect fit.
My silver wire is .999 fine silver over a copper core, encased in a durable clear enamel coating. (My gold, bronze, rosegold, and copper wires also have the clear enamel coating, unless otherwise specified.) I have been using this wire since I began making jewelry in 2003, because it is extremely non-reactive - people with metal allergies can wear it! - and it does not tarnish. It is also easier for me to manipulate than solid sterling wire, which allows me to hand-sculpt it into the intricate fwooshiness of my trademark style despite the extensive hypermobility caused by Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
In the interest of being environmentally friendly, I keep my packaging as minimal as possible while still protecting the contents. Most orders are shipped in small kraft boxes inside bubble mailers, with items packed together whenever possible rather than using a single box for each piece of jewelry in an order. (If you ever need an extra box for gift-giving purposes, just ask!) Larger items are usually shipped wrapped in tissue paper in a Priority Mail box.
I am transitioning away from using packing slips or other paper inserts; while many small businesses like mine routinely include handwritten thank you notes in every order, I feel it is more environmentally responsible to express my appreciation for your patronage via email rather than contributing to the contents of your recycling bin!
