Urban Elegance Concrete Necklace

Unusual concrete necklace, decorated with beautiful turquoise glitter which reminds of mermaid scales. Silver plated chain with a lobster clasp.

You may be thinking, ‘But why would I wear concrete?’
Well, it's certainly different from the obvious gold, silver or beads. So, while most of us have a traditional view of concrete as something cold, industrial and harsh, it's fascinating to take the basic raw material and fashion it into delightful and delicate pieces of jewelry. We all wear jewelry to express our individuality and say something about how we feel. For many of us there is a thrill in finding pieces which are unique and unusual. These concrete pieces are definitely not run of the mill, nor something available on high street. So how likely will you meet someone else wearing a piece of concrete jewelry? If you choose what to wear to make an impact, this may be the perfect piece for you.

All my pieces are made from jewelry grade concrete which is lighter and smoother than the common concrete. That makes it very easy and pleasant to wear. Due to the nature of concrete, you may notice some small air bubbles or scratches. This is not a defect; it adds to the beauty and originality of each piece.
