This beautiful Sterling Byzantine Chainmaille Necklace is created in the Renaissance style, so I call it Sea Opal Renaissance. The beauty and intricacy of the Byzantine Chainmaille weave joins with the ethereal beauty of sea opal beads and pendant to create a stunning combination that's sure to please.
The hand woven chain and large lobster style clasp of this Y necklace are sterling silver and the beads and pendant are Sea Opal (trade name) which is a high quality man made "gemstone" created to imitate opal or moonstone (also called opalite).
The necklace as pictured is 19.5" long, and the Y drop is 2.5".
Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have about this necklace while you are considering your purchase.
Thank you for shopping with McKean Creations,
Who knew an ankle bracelet would bring about the birth of McKean Creations?
My love for stones, beads, jewelry and accessories started as a child and never went away. I was quite the fashion statement in my pop beads of many colors and my friendship bracelets made of string in my early years. Later, in my teenage years, it was anklets, barefoot sandals and flowers in the hair. As an adult, I worked in a department store in the jewelry and accessories department and my jewelry stash grew. In 2006, while in Santa Cruz I decided to buy an ankle bracelet. Maybe I was trying to recapture my youth, I don’t know, but I couldn’t find one I liked, and more importantly, one that would fit. As soon as I returned home, I relearned how to make my own, and soon my coworkers and friends were all wanting to buy one for themselves. This led to creating earrings and bracelets which led to an invitation to sell at a large local season long craft fair. McKean Creations was born. Over a decade later I am still designing and growing in my knowledge of a variety of jewelry styles, learning more ways to create beautiful, comfortable and durable jewelry that become special keepsakes for my customers. It’s such a pleasure to see the happiness each piece brings them.
I feel from casual to elegant, jewelry should be a reflection of your style, so at McKean Creations I offer an eclectic array of custom designed jewelry handmade by artisan Marcia McKean (that’s me). You will find unique handcrafted jewelry that is great for any occasion, either for yourself or as a gift. Browse through my Goimagine store, pick out your favorites, then treat yourself or a loved one to that beaded indulgence you so deserve. I hope you enjoy wearing it as much as I enjoy the creation.

Important Announcement - Though we still mail your purchase within our normal time frame, mail is taking longer than the Post Office estimated times listed below to arrive at their destination. Some packages are taking 2-3 weeks and some are arriving within scheduled times, depending on which sorting facility the package is routed through.
Currently we are shipping in the United States only. We use the United States Postal System's (USPS) Priority Flat rate and USPS First class Mail with tracking. We ship to the address listed on your Goimagine account, so please make sure it is updated and correct (if checking out as a guest, we will use the address provided with the order). Your purchase will be shipped in 3-5 business days of cleared payment. If additional time is needed, you will be contacted. Once mailed, Priority Flat Rate packages normally will take 2-3 days to reach their destination and USPS First Class Mail 4-7 days, but this time line cannot be guaranteed once the package has been received by the post office. So far, packages have arrived and been pretty much on time. There's the occasional package that decides to take the more scenic route.
