How often do you find a piece of jewelry that not only makes you look beautiful, but also gives you a new way of looking at the world?

Take a close look at Kevin and Deborah Healy's elegant silver column pendant, and you'll discover it is actually a miniature, fully functioning kaleidoscope. The handcrafted little wonder has three mirrored surfaces inside that reflect a shifting tapestry of vibrant colors, provided by tiny grains of sea glass and recycled glass. Simply hold the rotating silver band between two fingers as you turn the tube and peer inside at the snowflake-like patterns within. The exterior of the pendant is embossed with an intricate lotus pattern. Each is engraved with the initials of the artists and the year it was made. Hangs from a sterling silver chain. Handmade in the USA.

Jewelry designers Kevin and Deborah Healy say, "the swirling colors and patterns of kaleidoscopes have enabled us to add a new dimension to how our jewelry may be enjoyed." The first kaleidoscopes they remember were the classic cardboard toys passed between friends during endless childhood summers under the willow trees between stickball games or tea parties. These later inspired the wearable works of art that the duo designs.

If you are looking for a gift that will have the recipient receiving compliments, and that looks far more expensive than it appears, then this is the gift for you. It's unique, very high quality, and beautiful. I absolutely love mine (though I bought three of these so I would have 2 gifts).

In addition to being special it's important to note that each one of these is unique. The pieces inside that make the colors are different in each one.

Oh, and one hint. Make sure you wear it on a long chain so that you can enjoy looking through the kaleidoscope (if it's too short you won't be able to bring it up to your eye).

I received it in mail last night and its just beautiful, however, this morning placed it on, got to work and theres nothing in the viewer now but mushy dark colors? Could the heat do that? Or sweating in the car on ride here? Will it go back to being ok??? I am just devasated as this was so beautiful when it arrived last night--What happened??

      Comments about UncommonGoods Kaleidoscope Necklace:

      As a necklace, this is already quite beautiful. But I was astonished at how good it is as a kaleidoscope! I thought, given its small size, that the colors and patterns would be quite simple - but they are *wonderful*! Now that I've bought one for my daughter-in-law, I'm hinting rather shamelessly to my husband to get one for me on *my* birthday!

            This necklace is one those rare, uncommon gems. A definite conversation starter. The price may seem a bit high but the necklace is very well made and so different from anything else out there. The kaleidoscope is amazing with it's ease of use and ever-changing, brilliant, colorful patterns. The 24" chain sits nicely with most tops whether you're wearing a crew neck, turtleneck or v-neck. This was the perfect gift for my daughter's 18th birthday. I may just get another for myself.

              I really wanted it and was disappointed that I had to return it. Maybe if it was a little larger it would be able to see the changes.

                  Comments about UncommonGoods Kaleidoscope Necklace:

                  This is the most amazing piece of jewelry I have ever owned. It is a truly functioning kaleidoscope, and gives as much variety in colors and designs as any full-sized version.

                  I would recommend this as a gift for anyone that might enjoy a kaleidoscope even in the slightest bit.

                  My only recommendation/wish was that it came with a swivel clasp. I out it on one so that I could let other people look at it without having to take my whole necklace off. As soon as anyone knows what it is, they want to look through it.

                  The kaleidoscope is well made. I was impressed in the detail of coming on a soldered ring, so that it will not easily come apart and fall off a chain. The rest of the piece seems very durable as well.

                  I very much appreciated the 24", quality sterling chain, as it makes it easier to look through and allows the pendant to hang at a nice length when wearing.
