Coming Up Roses

Kissed by a rose on the chain. Now that's what we call a hit single: A standalone piece that charms on the first, fifth and fiftieth wear. Artist Ellen Thurmond's sweet and playful bouquets of semi-precious roses let you give and get buds that never lose their bloom. Thurmond coils recycled sterling silver wire around bundles of hand-carved red jade, rose quartz and yellow jade petals forever blossoming from aventurine leaves. A personal token for carrying your affection through the years. Handmade in California.

Due to the nature of the natural jade stones, colors may be lighter than how the item appears in its photograph.

    Comments about BOUQUET OF ROSES NECKLACE:

    Purchased one of each color to give to my Bridesmaids. Red is truly red, yellow is soft, the pink is very light as well - kind of pale. All women who received have different styles and personalities and different ages, ALL LOVED THEM and wear often.

    They were perfectly carved bouquets.

    Only downfall, chain that comes with it is kind of chincey... I'd buy another one. However the length is nice.

        This is a wonderful necklace for the person you care about and want to give her something she will really like and others will notice and admire. It's solid, well made, the roses are really cool the way they've been carved and it's worth the money for the amount of silver.

        They are pretty. I don't know if I would pay $98. I love original jewelry, and the handmade aspect, but still, it's priced a bit out of my market.

        i'm sure they took plenty of effort to make, but to me the end result just doesn't look like the price (or even near to it).

        it's kind of cool with the jade and the roses and the wire, but I think as a pin would be better. a necklace isn't as practical

        Ann

        It looks like something that you would find in a flea market/craft booth. Too expensive for something that looks like a $5 find. The chain looks like you could get it for .25 out of a bubblegum machine.

        I would never wear anything like that and especially something that is that expensive. I'm not a big fan of this at all.

        Expensive and just not my style. I can only envision a young girl wearing this and at $98 its too expensive to gift to someone so young. Tacky.

        Not to offend anyone but I really don't like the look of the necklace. I looks like something that I could make myself, but much more expensive. Maybe if the wire was not used and instead just wrapped with a sheet of silver it would look more intricate.

        I'd expect the cost to be closer to $65

        Very unique but just a bit overpriced.

        A little too high - we can see the material is not that expensive.

        Always love the idea of recycled materials, and this is a really cute idea.

        a little price, you can but a dozen roses for less than the price!

        For $98, I'm going to expect a little more craftsmanship. Great idea.

        Recycled! Like these a lot. Is the price for one? I'd like to see it lower in price! Otherwise...a winner!

        Lovely, but a little pricy - it would be more attractive at a lower price point.

        Absolutely love this! Considering how much some flowers are for "special occasions" I'd definately prefer something like this.

        Hi again, I'm the artist who crafted these. It's been interesting reading the comments here, and I would like to address just a couple of things brought up:- The chain (which is high quality sterling made in the USA) is 20" long.- The wire is not scratchy- The price is a reflection of the precious metals market and the fact that this is handmade in the USAThe main complaint I've seen on all the silver jewelry here at UG is price. Please go look up the precious metals market an see how prices have more than doubled in the last year (and still seem to be rising).And please, do not compare items made of high quality material in the USA to items made with cheap material in countries where workers are not paid at the same rate.But hey, if you think it's tacky then you're entitled to your opinion. :)Thanks,Ellen

        A little too expensive...love the roses, but my first thought was that you could get poked by either the wire or flowers while wearing it. I'd like to see the flowers in another setting.

        I voted thumbs up because they're so cute, but I still think the price is a bit high.

        this tells you why people buy items from other countries~ made is USA hikes up the price tag toooooo much
