knitted copper chain 'rust and patina' beaded necklace

Definitely among the most favorite colors of the artist, rust and green patina shades are both beautiful, natural, and perfect with so many colors, if not all - just a few examples here. This necklace combines part-knitted part-crocheted chain with unusual vintage beads, a large semi-precious stone bead and linen fibers to create a piece which seems to be part of nature itself - like it actually is in most of its components. Try it with different outfits shown, all available separately until sold. Product code: I4898

General cleaning instructions for all garments (also see care tag inside the clothing) are as follows:

  • Any garment can be dry-cleaned with the gentle/delicates method.
  • Items marked 'hand wash' can be washed by hand (not in the gentle or hand-wash machine cycle), separately, as briefly as possible, with minimal amount of mild detergent, particularly for hand-painted items. Follow with the spin cycle of the washing machine, and finish in medium heat dryer, unless hang-drying is recommended, which is the case for most knits.
  • Hand-pressing is recommended on most items after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.
  • Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.
