Who says being from the great state of Texas is only about cowboys and cacti? This Texas Hippie Check necklace sports an astronaut pendant and space shuttle, peace sign, and feather charms (it's all about flight, right?)
This double strand necklace is made from beautiful African turquoise, smoky quartz, Swarovski crystals, and vintage costume pearls. The round connectors, reminiscent of UFOs, are filled with Swarovski crystals, and the tiny feather is antique silver. The easy-to-use hook closure is Tibetan silver, and the necklace can be adjusted from 18 to 21 inches using the attached tail chain. The matching Hippie Chick earrings dangle a single African turquoise bead, a feather, and smoky quartz and vintage costume pearls from Tibetan silver peace signs.

Sizing a necklace
Before you purchase a necklace, you’ll want to make sure it fits you properly. If you look online, you’ll see various aids for measuring. A simple method is to measure your neck just above the collarbone and add up to four inches for the drop. My neck measures 15 inches, which means I can wear a necklace of 19 inches. This is a bit simplified, however, because your height and the size of your shoulders will also affect how a necklace fits you. Of course, you will also want to decide where you’d like the necklace to hang as well. See the next two FAQs below for a more specific method and a chart with common sizes.
To be more precise in your measurements, try measuring your neck first, then measure your drop: from the collarbone to the top of your breastbone. Add the two. My neck is 15 and my drop is 4 inches, so 19 inches should work well for me. In some cases, your neck might be smaller and your drop longer. An alternative method is to find a necklace in your collection that you really like and measure it. Just hold the necklace up and measure from the clasp to the bottom, then double it. Keep in mind that the style of the necklace will also affect what size works for you. A necklace with a pendant will be longer and will need the right type of neckline to show well. All of the necklace sizes listed in my shop are exclusive of the pendant.
Choker length: 14-16 inches
Should circle your neck snugly. Buy a necklace that matches your neck size with just a bit of extra room so it won’t be too tight.
Collar length: 18-20 inches
This length should fall just below your collarbone and will go well with high necklines like a crew neck.
Neckline length: 20-22 inches
This is the perfect length for a necklace that shows off a pendant and will hang just to the top of your breastbone.
Short pendant length: 24-26 inches
Falls below the neckline and will work well with a high neck like a turtleneck.
Long pendant length: 26 inches and longer
I recommend you use your measuring tape to see how a certain length will look on you.
