A lot of music items and a little bit of everything else
I don't know the age of this necklace. It is definitely not a new piece. It is something I bought years ago from an estate sale and I loved the amber. It is 18" in length.
What makes it special is the flowers that are cut into the back of the amber that shows through on the front.
Today when I closely examined the marcasite there are several places where a marcasite is missing. You cannot see it by looking at it because the tiny recessed spaces are the same color. Look at the pictures. Can you see them? In no way does it take away the beauty of the necklace. I wanted you to be aware before purchasing. I took this into account when pricing the necklace and reduced the price because of it.
Here is a bit of info about marcasite most people are unaware of. It is not a stone. It is a mineral. It is soft and easily damaged. Do not dip it in silver cleaner. It will dissolve it. It is beautiful and has been used in jewelry for a long time. If it is well cared for it can last a long time.
At the store, https://watchandwhirlshop.com there is a blog. I wrote an article about how to care for jewelry you might be interested in reading.
For a number of years I had a brick and morter store in Key West called Touched by the Sun that catered to cruiseship passengers. I loved selecting the inventory I thought my customers would love. The selection constantly changed. Deciding to create an online store brought back that excitement again. I look forward to shopping for unusual and creative merchandise. I expect the store to grow and change with your suggestions of what you'd buy If I carried it. What are your passions? What are your hobbies? Are you into healthy food, cosmetics or vitamins? Do you enjoy camping or gardening? Do you have children or grandchildren with special talents? Send me an email and let me know. Leave feedback and comments if you think I deserve it.

Some of you follow me at other internet sites - listening to my piano Improv compositions or watching my music videos at YouTube or http://sonniquick.net. This music is the soundtrack for a book I'm writing, "Inside The Forbidden Outside" about the life of Jamie Cummings who is still incarcerated. Some of you read sample chapters found at http://mynameisjame.net. This is the reason for opening this store - to raise the money to finish and publish a quality book. I hope to raise awareness of the conditions, physically and mentally, that people have to live in through their incarceration, often unjustly because it brings the prison corporations high profit. I can't do this unless I am able to earn more money. Hopefully, I will build a store, a little at a time that you will enjoy shopping in! Welcome!
