margaret solow's pieces are timeless and elegant no matter what is happening in fashion at the moment. I love her simplicity and so happy she never strays from that.. Her pieces are cherished in Japan and all over the globe for their quality and unfailing beauty. Margaret makes everything by hand in her studio, her gems are never heated to subjected to chemical cleaning, they are in their natural state. Her pieces are strung one by one. This necklace is a combination of amber faceted glass beads and a large 18k gold bead strung on a 33" necklace. The piece is as you see in photos - if you want to see more photos just email me.
