Autumn Crystal Sparkles with garnet
You know, it's hard to describe the colors on this necklace, because they change and sparkle in different shades as the light hits the components. Let's start with the focal. This is another piece by Liz at Abacusbeads. I had intended to use citrine nuggets for the strand because the colours so beautifully picked up the golden yellow in the disc, but when I tried that it looked unbalanced and out of sorts. However - Swarovsky to the rescue! Something can always be found that works when I delve into the crystal stash. So, instead of citrine chunks, the main components of the strand are 6mm and 4mm crystal cubes in graduated shades of lighter to darker gold. Spaced in between the crystal cubes are 4mm bicones in "Montana" blue, and ametrine chips. (If you're not familiar with ametrine, its a stone that partakes of the qualities of both citrine and amethyst depending n how the light hits it.) I wanted the whole focal disc to show face on, so rather than stringing directly through the center hole, I made a suspension loop from 5mm garnet rounds and finished the whole thing off with a gold-toned toggle clasp. (I can't afford *real* gold, or even serious gold-filled, so it's lightly plated base metal - sorry, kids!) You should see it sparkle in the sunshine!
