N is for Necklace

22 Apr

Club Creative Studio creates many different styles of hand-made necklaces.  And, when designing a necklace, there are many factors to consider besides the beads, and findings.  The letter N is for necklace and in today’s blog, I share with you information that you may find useful when designing your own or purchasing a necklace with a specific length you desire. The length of your necklace can be created in a variety of ways and worn to enhance your over-all style.

It may be easier to know the common vocabulary to describe your length needs of a necklace.  Use this chart to become familiar.

Club Creative Studio Necklace. http://www.clubcreativestudio.com

Choker:   14-16 inches (35-40 cm)

Princess Necklace:  18-20 inches (45-50 cm)

Matinee Necklace:  23-24 inches (55-60 cm)

Opera:  30-32 inches (75-90 cm)

Lariat:  40-45 inches ( 100-112 cm)

Sautoir:  Longer than an Opera necklace

Club Creative Studio necklaces vary in lengths.

It is always possible to make a longer necklace shorter or a shorter necklace longer.  When in the design stages, knowing the desired outcome in advance is the key to making it a specific length in the end. Often times an extender (additional links) can be added to the necklace at the ends to make the length adjustable for comfort or convience.
