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).

        Comments about UncommonGoods Kaleidoscope Necklace:

        I wear this necklace all the time. I dress it up and down. People often remark about how pretty it is. When I tell them it is a working kaleidoscope, they are amazed, so I take it off so they can look through the little scope and see the perfectly formed, colorful designs. I'm so happy with this purchase. It has become a staple in my jewelry box.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I received this necklace within a few days of ordering it. It delivered quickly and in excellent condition.

            I have wanted this for years and my Husband surprised me with it at Christmas. I was so excited, I cried. It is so beautiful! The silver chain is sturdy but like a shiny strand of silk! The kaleidoscope really truly works and I can't explain how lovely the views are. I look at it all the time. Constantly spinning, spinning the tiny barrel. This is quite possibly my favorite gift EVER!

            It was a present.

                I bought this as a gift and was beyond impressed once it arrived and I was able to see it in person. My mother has collected kaleidoscopes since before I can remember (albeit, the gift was not for her, I should buy her one!). It turns beautifully, the colours are vibrant, the detailing on the outside is an added touch. Although pricey, for a special gift that is both memorable and has meaning, this is what you are looking for.
