What is a Neckstring?
Neckstrings are versatile hand crocheted gemstone necklaces handmade with love and attention to detail right here in Houston, Texas. No two are alike because of the natural variations in gemstones. I hand select each element as I conceptualized and interpret a design. then crochet with the chosen semi precious gems and upscale materials.
My designs are fluid like the Texas Rivers they are named for, and are always changing course, I work with freshwater pearls, natural gems and stones, sterling silver, 14 karat gold fill wire, chain, vermeil, copper, and pewter. I love spiritual pieces, connections of the body, mind, and spirit and incorporate unique elements with energy. Necklaces, bracelets and earrings are all made with the same attention to quality, balance and detail.
How to wear a Neckstring

Cut a piece of string to the approximate length and play with it to get an idea of where your Lariat Neckstring will fall tied all the different ways.

Necklace can be worn differently simply by where you choose to position the gemstones and or charm elements. It can be wrapped 2-3 times depending on length, and while it self layers, can also be layered in and worn with your other favorite styles. I am trying to get a slideshow or video together to show you all the variations!
How to store your Jewelry
Jewelry is meant to be worn and enjoyed but not when you are swimming, gardening sleeping or exercising! The tips can get caught and you could get hurt so take it off and hang it in the gym locker, or drape it over a lampshade at home. Instant art for the win! Seriously, I do drape my personal collection on lampshades but I know that vibe isn’t for everyone so hang it on a jewelry rack or put it in the small ziplock bag (which I always include.)
TRAVEL with it in a bag—just be sure to leave an inch or so out of the bag and “caught” in the ziplock so it keeps tangles away. Plastic bags also help keep jewelry dust free and clean and that is always a win.
