This delicate 'Arya' necklace from the EMBA collection features a single beautiful freshwater pearl on a tarnish resistant silver-plated chain. Lovingly handmade in my Brighton seaside studio on the south coast of England, this minimalist necklace comes gift-wrapped and would make an ideal present for a friend, bridesmaid – or yourself!
Each pearl I use is meticulously selected for its natural lustre and beautiful, natural colouring. Once the perfect pearl is selected, I use a delicate 'infinity' wire wrapping technique to encase the pearl and highlight its simple beauty. Each pendant is completely unique thanks to this signature hand-crafted technique, and features tarnish resistant silver-plated fastenings.
From my small studio I can create any design to order, or work with you to commission one-of-a-kind pieces for a special occasion such as a wedding. I love creating individual pieces for bridesmaid gifts, or designing jewellery to match your wedding gown.

The freshwater pearl featured in this design is approximately 6mm x 8mm and hand-wrapped with 0.6mm silver-plated copper wire.
The dimensions of the fine chain link are approximately 1mm x 2mm.
I complete each necklace chain with a 2 inch extension chain which features a complimentary pearl as an added design feature.
Please note, the silver-coloured chain in this design is vacuum-plated. This is a hard-wearing style of silver plating, however, to avoid discolouration please take extra care not to get it wet or spray perfumes directly onto it. This design is also listed in our shop as a version with a solid sterling silver chain.

The chain is made to order and comes in a variety of lengths – see drop-down menu.
I make each jewellery set to order, so please specify your preferred length when ordering.
This necklace is measured opened from end to end.

Pearls symbolise wisdom acquired through experience. As well as offering the wearer protection, they are believed to attract wealth and good luck. Pearls are also said to symbolise the generosity, integrity and loyalty of the wearer.
Pearls are also a symbol of purity, love and union, making them a meaningful bridal accessory or bridesmaid gift. As far back as ancient Greece it’s even been said that wearing pearls will stop a newly-married bride from crying!
Pearls have a magical quality that has been treasured for centuries across many cultures. They were once poetically described as, ‘drops of dew, dropped from the sky into the moonlit ocean’.
