Necklace lengths usually are as follows:
15-16" is a choker length
17 -20" is a nice length for most women
20 -24" is nice length for most men

Of course you may order any length you prefer. I like to wear a few chains at once and often have a shorter 17" one, then a 21" and a 25" chain on...that creates a nice look each chain sitting inside the next.

I also encourage you to add a bracelet chain to the back of your necklace if you would like to create a longer necklace depending on your preference.

Miniature Adirondack Pack Basket Necklace (N79)

The classic pot-belly shape of the Adirondack pack is recreated in sterling and fine silver. I have woven this basket in the same manner that a natural fiber pack basket would be woven. There are only a few exceptions, one being the handle which I solder to the rim instead of inserting it down into several rows of weaving and the stakes are not bent over the rim row and tucked into the weaving, they are soldered to the rim row. Measures about 7/8" X 3/4" X 1-1/8" high. I even make the leather strap and silver buckle at the rim. The handmade twisted link chain measures 24" long and slides through the jumpring attached to the basket handle.

Rio Chain Necklace & Earring Set (N151)

Our handmade Rio chain is made up of sterling silver rings with 14 karat gold beads, the contrast between the two metals is eye catching and works well for people that like to wear both metals together.

We use our twisted link and handmade clasp in the back, which allows you to shorten the chain a bit, if you hook the clasp in a different link and let the extra chain hang down the back.

The Rio chain earrings are made the same as the necklace and measure 1.75" long including the sterling ear hook. We can change the ear hook to a 14 karat gold ear hook for an added charge if you like. The gold ear hook looks great!

The necklace measures 19" and the earrings have a sterling silver ear hook.
