Choupinette Murano Glass Crab Necklace
Annamaria creates hand-crocheted necklaces featuring whimsical pendants made of Murano glass, Miyuki Pearls and real shells. Each piece is unique.
Annmaria is from the south of Italy, from Puglia. She has been a French teacher for 32 years and she loves her students! “I have always crocheted, my grandmother taught me to do it, I love it. It's a passion, I forget all worries when I make my creations. I am looking for different and quality materials. I just love seeing people happy to wear my jewelry! I use Japanese beads, Miyuki, and beads (conteria) from Murano, a small island in Venice, famous since the 16th century for the production of glass objects where I have my super cute little pendants made."
Handmade in Italy
SISTER jewellery is made of 24k Gold-plated 925 Sterling Silver. Gold plating naturally wears off over time, revealing the silver beneath. Avoid contact with fragrances, lotions, rough surfaces and cleaning agents, especially chlorine as it can permanently damage or discolour your jewellery. Make sure your skin is dry before putting on your jewellery. Always remove your gold plated jewellery in the shower, when swimming or exercising and store it in a dry and air-tight place. Clean it gently with a soft cloth only and avoid rubbing. Unlike mass produced jewellery,handmade pieces will almost always have imperfections and each piece will never be identical to another. This uniqueness is part of the beauty of handmade jewellery.
