Adam's Black or White necklace [upcycled simpearls, Swarovski]
This faux-lariat necklace in black, white, pink, and silver is a sight to behold, perfect for both office wear and prom / evening gowns. Gorgeous upcycled vintage glass pearls have been combined with soft pink and hot pink tiny beads for a very feminine look. Black chain and a bold black and white pendant add a modern look, and the black and silver dangles proclaim freedom. This is a necklace for "une femme liberee." At 20" (51cm), this necklace hangs at a perfect height. There is a 3" extender for a total length of up to 23" (79cm).
This necklace was inspired by two songs, Adam Lambert's interpretation of Black or White, and Cookie Dingler's Femme Liberee. Just like those songs, there is a lot of poetry going on in this necklace, and the end result is a beautiful message.
This necklace makes use of thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, and inspected upcycled beads. The upcycles are: the pink acrylic petal above the pendant, the tiny 2mm white acrylic pearls, the five 4mm bicone Swarovski crystals, and the gorgeous 8mm creamy white vintage ('80) glass pearls.
The upcycled vintage glass pearls are strung on tigertail wire with alternating 4mm soft pink glass pearls, and tiny hot pink seed beads. Textured black enameled copper chains break the feminine look on the left side of the necklace for a feeling of modernism and freedom. The matte chain is itself broken by two upcycled vintage glass pearls and an upcycled Swarovski crystal. There is a big message here that can easily be used as a conversation starter :)
All four ends of the tigertail wire have been double-crimped for extra safety. The three ends connecting to the black chain have been protected with silver french bullion for extra safety.
The center of the strung necklace is looped through an upcycled dark pink acrylic petal, surrounded by four upcycled Swarovski crystals, and using upcycled 2mm acrylic pearls to create a bail for the pendant.
The 1.5" (4 cm) square acrylic and enamel pendant has a silvery metallic finish, and the front has been enameled half black, half white. The pendant is connected to the necklace and dangling chains by four textured silver plated links.
The faux-lariat style is created using two dangling chains, a 2" textured black enameled copper chain with a glass and acrylic white and pink pearl charm, and a 4" silver plated textured/smooth chain ending in a textured silver plated link, a gorgeous 8mm faceted round Swarovski Rose crystal, and a glass and acrylic white and pink pearl charm.
The back of the necklace closes with a black matte lobster clasp, and has a 3" extender made from the same matte textured chain as in the rest of the necklace. The extender ends in a cute white and pink glass and acrylic pearl charm. The necklace looks best worn at its original 20" length, but it can also be worn up to 23" for longer busts.
Wear this necklace day or night, for a feminine yet strong look. It will definitely not go unnoticed and is a perfect necklace to wear while schmoozing, as it is definitely a conversation starter. One could talk about the messages they see in this necklace forever! :)
The chain and modern pendant will easily match jeans and tee-shirts, while the pearls and crystals will look smashing with any prom or evening gown. A truly versatile necklace!
