Details

Quality Black AB (Aurora Borealis) Beads are woven into an intricate pattern. They are accented with transparent pale blue beads adding contrast to the design. The interesting shape is created with the use of oblong glossy black beads and smaller beads with a gunmetal finish. Along the top is a scallop shape that connects at each side to the black AB beads. The lower edge is decorated with a teardrop bead in the same black AB color giving it an attractive pointed accent. The clasp is gunmetal plated to match the tiny beads that wind their way throughout the piece. A lovely addition to any outfit, this charming necklace will always be in style. Also available in other colors for Custom Orders at no extra charge.

I created this beautiful necklace 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 times 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.) Bead weaving has a suppleness to it that allows it to curve and drape over the shape of your body making it very comfortable to wear.

This necklace is 16 Inches by .75 Inches and has a flat shape on the top with a flat back that lays nicely against your neck. The clasp is Gunmetal Plate over Brass.

MEASURE yourself for a necklace by wrapping a string around your neck allowing it to drape to the place you want it to hang, then place this length against a ruler. This is your necklace size! (Add something like a key to the string for necklaces with a pendant.)

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The Jewelry I design starts with all the elements (beads, thread, findings) individually. Colors and textures are my inspiration. Sometimes I create the design and then create the piece and other times I design the piece as I create it. The design process is not unlike that of Artwork with color, shading, balance, and shape critical to the process. I don't make them 'in mass' and many of my pieces are one of a kind designs for special occasions. Of course the patterns can be repeated in different colors and custom orders are often used for that.

Thanks for your order. May you Smile and be Beautiful!

Materials Used

More Info

Bead Weaving is an ancient art. It is complex and very time consuming. The Bead Woven items in this Shop have taken between 2 and 50 hours to make. Doing it properly so it will last is very important. I spend many hours on each piece because I believe it's worth it to present an excellent product.

This design (or pattern) is my own, © S L Waldon, inspired by another designer. It can be ordered in any color combination. Contact Seller and tell me your colors and size. I will be happy to make it for you! Custom orders may vary in price according to the materials used.
