I must confess that my Aegean necklace and earrings are pieces I designed a while ago. I love them and sold quite a few sets last year at the Country Living Fair in Harrogate, but never actually got them online.

So I have had these pieces on my list a little while, but I’ve been struggling with lighting some of my pieces to take the kinds of pictures I want – the kind that make them look as lovely as they do when they are in my hand, but I think I am finally getting there.

So, here is the Aegean necklace. I have used these gorgeous tear drop shaped chrysocolla beads which come in an amazing range of greeny-turquoisy shades. For this reason, I make each necklace have a graduation from the paler greens to the stronger turquoises, to ensure that you will receive a necklace that looks pretty much like this one.

The matching Aegean earrings are long, but also dainty, and I have used a seed pearl to contrast with the turquoise shades. Because of the variance on the stones, I can guarantee a closely matched pair, but their shade may be at the darker or lighter end. If you have a preference, you can just let me know when ordering which shade you would prefer.
