White Jade Calla Lily Art Nouveau Inspired Hand Wired Negligee Necklace, perfect for Woodland Weddings, Forest Fairies or Steampunk Botanical Adventurers.
The design was inspired by the gorgeous asymmetrical negligee necklaces of the Edwardian and Art Nouveau periods. The word negligee comes from French meaning ‘neglected or careless’. The Negligee necklace is usually formed with two parallel pendants which are suspended at unequal lengths. This is my take on the idea, using three strands but keeping faithful to the asymmetrical design. The focal point of this necklace is a White Jade Calla Lily; it is surrounded by delicate vintage opalescent glass beads, sweet little vintage pressed glass lily of the valley flowers, pressed Czech glass leaves and sparkling (*Premium Quality Cut Lead Crystal*) bi-cone beads. It is all brought together with delicate antiqued bronze filigree centre piece, hand wrapped wire, chains and adornments and an Art Nouveau style clasp.

✩Size (all measurements are approximate)✩
*52cm (21 inches) long, but can be adjusted anywhere shorter and also be worn as a choker due to the chain and clasp.
*The filigree oval is 4.5cm wide, 2cm top to bottom,
*central drop cm overall is 9cm including the filigree and beads

*All jewellery items are UV sterilised immediately before wrapping for your safety.

✩Calla Lily✩
Like most flowers, the Calla Lily has a symbolic meaning. It is, ironically, associated with both weddings and funerals. The Calla Lily is symbolic of marriage and purity because of its white colour and its trumpet-like shape, similar to a woman's shape. It is also the symbol of rebirth and resurrection; therefore, it is widely used in funeral arrangements and planted in cemeteries.

✩Lily Of The Valley✩
is the birth flower for the month of May. Lily Of The Valley is often chosen as a wedding flower, both for its elegance and the delicacy of its fragrance. In the language of flowers, it represents a "return to happiness," perhaps because this early bloomer is a harbinger of spring. According to legend, the Lily Of The Valley draws out the Nightingale, leading him to choose his mate. Like many other white flowers, it symbolises purity, humility, chastity and sweetness.

Jewellery: Care Instructions

Jewellery should be the last thing you put on the first thing you take off.
Always avoid getting hair products, perfume or chemicals (chemicals can include household cleaning products, some foods such as Lemons or vinegar)
General Advice:
Any metal be-it Sterling Silver, base metals or plated alloys can become dull or tarnished. As a general rule don't get it wet, if you do, dry and polish with a soft cloth. If it goes dull or tarnished, a gentle polish with a non-abrasive Silver cloth will bring it's lustre back. Gems or beads can be wiped with a slightly damp cloth to restore their original lustre.
Certain precious or semi-precious stone may require special care, I will include the information in the items full description or care leaflet.
