A gemstone necklace for either day or night, because Quartz is so versatile. It is a short ‘choker’ necklace, so the stones will sit around the base of your throat. There are two strings, forming a very pretty pattern. The Quartz is cut into chips, or nuggets, and polished smooth. Each piece is different and will lie differently each time you wear it. Wear it with any colour, and being Quartz it is almost completely transparent. So pretty!
Silver round toggle clasp.
Approx 15″ / 38cm on a Silver chain. This length is a Choker necklace and is designed to sit around the base of the throat. Please measure your neck before buying to ensure it won’t be too tight.
Birthstone: Quartz – Aries or Taurus
Good for: dispelling negative emotions and encouraging a positive attitude, improving focus, clarity and concentration
Collection: Helen Keller
Did you know? The term “quartz” comes from the Greek word for “ice.” Ancient Greek philosophers like Theophrastus believed that the transparent stone was a form of permanent ice, so cold that it kept from thawing.
BeeJewelled’s necklace ranges are named after those influential and important women we have looked up to throughout history.
As an infant in 1882, Helen was struck by an illness which left her blind and deaf. She bravely overcame the adversity that came with such a debilitating disability to become one of the 20th century’s leading humanitarians and educators, as well as helping to found the The American Civil Liberties Union in 1920.
After college, Keller set out to learn more about the world and how she could help improve the lives of others. Throughout the first half of the 20th century, she tackled social and political issues, including women’s suffrage, pacifism and birth control. In 1946, she was appointed counsellor of international relations for the American Foundation of Overseas Blind. Between 1946 and 1957, she travelled to 35 countries on five continents. In 1955, at age 75, Keller embarked on the longest and most gruelling trip of her life: a 40,000-mile, five-month trek across Asia. Through her many speeches and appearances, she brought inspiration and encouragement to millions of people. Thank you, Helen.

Due to the nature of handmade, your jewellery may be slightly different to that in the images, however the essential design will be the same.
The materials I use are entirely natural, with differing shapes, sizes and colours. Some may have small natural inclusions or be more segmented with patches of differing hues, meaning that each is beautifully unique.
Don’t forget that in buying from BeeJewelled not only are you getting a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery made with care and attention by hand, but you are also helping to save the bees and, in turn, our Earth! Thank you.
