Oooh Nifty!! That;s so starlet-walking-down-a-long-staircase-in-a-sweeping-nightdress-to-meet-her-secret-lover type thing! I am absolutely in love, MUST trek off to my bead store Smiley And I dont think you will die, but if you wear it right against your skin you might get a slight irratation, depending on how much lead is in the crystal. Ohhh look, I sound like I know what I'm talking about.  Wink

I think that it would be fine to wear occaisionally, but lead poisoning is a real danger especially for children.  If you are the type of person who is constantly re-adjusting a necklace that wants to travel (as I am), and then touching your mouth, or corner of your eye - it would probably be safer to choose a glass "crystal."  Lead poisoning was the most likely cause of the death of Beethoven, also the madness of VanGogh and Goya were most likely the result of lead poisoning (I know, not from jewelry).  I wasn't trying to scare anyone, but if you have the choice of chandelier piece - a glass piece would be cheaper and safer.

wonderful neacklace.   Grin

btw, doesn't crystal stemware contain lead?  I think it does...  so, if you drink out of it, it can't be that bad for you.  but I could be not thinking at the moment; I'm really really tired.

I absolutely adore this necklace! I am defintiely going to have to find some beads and make myself a beautiful bling bling necklace like this. Maybe I'll make a whole bunch and all of my co-bridesmaids in the upcoming TWO weddings I'm in can wear them. Good idea me thinks!

AND! on the lead question. If the item has over .06% lead then there is a greater chance of having a reaction and potential illness. (http://www.cpsc.gov/BUSINFO/pblevels.pdf)

 According to the site listed above crystal must have the following percentages:
 Fine crystal must contain 6% to 10% lead oxide
Lead crystal must contain 10% to 24% lead oxide
Full lead crystal must contain 24% or more lead oxide.

So, it look like crystal could in fact be quite dangerous to wear against your skin.  Sad Fortunately rhinestones are still safe to wear, thank heavens for that!  Grin

yes, i second the comment about the leaded crystal stemware...i haven't heard of people keeling over from drinking out of the stuff or from wearing leaded crystal jewllery.

now the real thing to watch out for is plates decorated with paint or glaze containing lead...THOSE will hurt you.

Great necklace!

So after all this talk about lead crystal does anyone know a good source for the cut glass crystals?
