Black Aurora Borealis 'Carla' Necklace Hand Beaded Jewelry By Islands Of Time Gifts

The small beads are glass high quality Myuki beads from the makers of Delica Beads .
The large blue beads are Pale Blue Pressed Glass by Presiosa in the Czech Republic.
The large black beads are Preciosa 4MM Pressed Glass beads Czech Republic.
The oval beads are Pressed Glass by Presiosa in the Czech Republic.
The thread is nylon, very strong, and made in the USA especially for beading.
The clasp is Gold Plate over Brass.
To care for the piece just wash it with mild soap by gently rubbing it between your hands and dry flat. (I like Baby Shampoo because it is very mild, easily removes the skin oils, and leaves it shiny)

This design (or pattern) is my own, S L Waldon. It is called 'Carla' after my dear sister. It is made using a technique called bead weaving where the beads are added in a pattern, many times adding row upon row until the design is complete. This creates a strong piece because often the thread has to pass through the beads many time to get the desired pattern. (In my work I make sure that every layer of beads has at least two passes of thread to make all the beads secure within the piece even if I have to essentially 'repeat' the pass on that row.
Inspiration/Story Behind This Product
