Prairie Collection - Wichita Long Necklace

325.00

The Wichita necklace is a slight variation on the box theme. Like the Bolo Tie, the box does not create the full shape, rather it is accented by heavy gauge square wire. This accent wire both provides additional shape and visual interest while still keeping the piece clean and elegant.

Enclosed in the box portion of this piece is a one of my favorite prairie wildflowers, goldenrod. However, the best part might actually be on the back. I’ve added a concave spot. While wearing long necklaces, I often find myself holding the pendant or stone in my hand. By giving the back this textural detail, I’m responding to that action of holding the piece by giving the wearer something to interact with.

This necklace is long! The chain is 32” and the pendant itself is another 3.5”. I would be happy to shorten this before sending it off, just let me know.

  • Goldenrod: Native Americans chewed the roots to relieve toothaches. Ground up leaves or boiled leaf extract can be used as an antiseptic lotion. Most importantly, it blooms late in the season and is a valuable source of pollen for bees during that time. Just so you know, goldenrod does not cause allergies. It blooms at the same time as ragweed, who is the actual culprit.
