This Michigan necklace features three charms; a cut-out of the upper peninsula, a cut-out of the lower peninsula, and a string of Leland Blue beads. The Michigan charms are made of textured sterling silver. The charms swing freely so it never looks quite the same from one minute to the next.
Leland blue is a glass-like byproduct of the iron industry in Northern Michigan. Well over 100 years ago this byproduct, called slag, was discarded in Lake Michigan. It has been washing up on shore ever since, especially near its namesake town of Leland, MI. Jewelers and rockhounds have been collecting and using this "stone" for years.
The Michigan charms are about 5/8ths of an inch across and the bead charm is between .75 and 1 inch long.
I hand select the Leland Blue beads. Leland Blue comes in a wide range of colors and textures, yours may look different than the photographs, but they will be close. One photograph shows several Leland Blue charms so you can you can see the variety that is possible. This listing comes with ONLY ONE Leland Blue charm and the two silver peninsula charms and a chain.
Each pendant comes with a sterling silver double rope chain. Please specify 16, 18, or 20 inches long for the chain. If in doubt, 18 inch chains seem to work well for most people. See the reference photo for an illustration of chain lengths.
