These are handmade, wire-wrapped gemstone charms that were designed to enhance my pillows. - particularly the black & white and black & natural collections shown here. Some of the pillows in these collections have tabs incorporated into the design to accommodate the charms, but clips are provided with each charm that enable it to hang from any of the designs by attaching it to the piping that is used to trim all of my pillows. With your own collection of pillows, perhaps some that don't have piping, you can simply attach the clips to the top portion of the fabric - particularly one that is not flimsy, but of a heavier weight -since these gemstones are heavier than the other charms offered. Check out our other charms for lighter alternative options.
This listing is for just one of our gemstone charms, the black onyx. The other three of the four selections - an oval black agate, a natural Howlite, and an oblong black agate - are listed separately under PILLOW CHARMS - WIRE-WRAPPED GEMSTONES #1 .
The components of the black onyx are wire-wrapped, but with black wire sans any flourish (all of the jump rings are hand-wrapped). It measures approximately 6.5 inches in length.
