The Susan Cummings creative process is unique, collaborative and labor intensive. It begins with wax artwork. Once the wax artwork has been completed, it is cast using the lost-wax casting process, and a mold is made of the original which is then injected with wax again to be cast into multiples. Each bead is clipped, cleaned and hand polished. The Small Pebble and Pearl Necklace measures 16 inches long. White fresh water pearls are interspersed between Sterling Silver Pebble Beads. The single strand Small Pebble and Pearl necklace features a strand of comfortable, textured sterling silver pebble beads. The strand lays easily across the neckline, looking wonderful alone or worn with other layered necklaces. This piece is knotted between every few beads on a nylon and silk thread, which gives it strength and a great drape.
