I thought I should help usher in a glorious Fall this year – I won’t miss the summer and probably won’t miss any of 2020 – so why not move on and bring some warm, rich colors in our beleaguered lives? Earthy beiges, browns, oranges and greens pair beautifully with well-aged sterling silver wire that cages glistening pieces of agate, onyx and quartz linking them together in this rope-length necklace. Necklaces of this type from the pre-1980 period are not as easy to come upon as similar pieces from the 1980s on.
