Animo necklace


Take any outfit and transform it into a total power outfit. How? By putting on the Animo necklace! This gorgeous statement necklace, featuring beautiful blue lapis lazuli, makes every entrance a grand entrance and every style a signature style.

Features rope hand spun by our makers. This necklace length adjusts in the back for the perfect neckline.

Materials: Focal piece available in bronze or sterling silver, with bezel set lapis lazuli stone. All stones are specially cut for Betsy & Iya, ethicially sourced, and fair trade. 100% cotton thread.

Crafted by hand in our Portland, Oregon production studio. 

Bronze and sterling silver can tarnish over time. Both can be brought back to their original luster with a polishing cloth.

Please avoid cleaning the fibers of the Animo necklace with a polishing cloth. To revitalize the fringes, a fine tooth comb with warm water (mild soap optional) can do the trick! This can also help reshape the fibers if they get unruly. Once damp, reshape the fibers and lay flat to dry. Store the Animo necklace mindfully, by hanging or laying flat, to keep the fibers in shape.

We recommend removing the jewelry when it makes most sense– e.g. don't do hardcore outdoor sports with your pieces on, don't wear them in a hot tub or submerged in water for a long period of time, put jewelry on after putting products in hair, etc. and you should be good to go!

Necklace rope is approximately 32" with the pendant hanging 3" below lowest point. Pendant is 2 1/2" wide at widest point. Necklace length is adjustable by sliding the brass piece at the back.
