This one-of-a-kind necklace was made by Elizabeth Johnson and
features her handmade glass berries. It includes nine Blackberries in varying
degrees of ripeness from green through red to completely black. The glass berries, leaves, beads and cones used in the necklace were all made by the artist. For strength the necklace is constructed on 49-strand beading wire plated with 24k gold, double-crimped with 18k yellow gold crimp beads and fastened with 18k yellow gold wire and clasp. The overall length is 19 inches.
To clean this necklace, wet your hands and lather them with a little liquid hand soap. Use your fingers to distribute the suds over the beads, then rinse very thoroughly to remove all soap traces from inside the beadholes. Pat dry on a clean terrycloth towel.
