Tricolor Green Seed Beads Necklace w/Pin/Pendant and Bracelet
The pin is a vintage one purchased in an antique shop. This became the focal point of the necklace. However, each piece can be worn separately.
The necklace is 16.5” long and .25” thick. The bracelet is 7.5” long and .25” thick. The pin is 2” high x 2” wide. All metal is gold plated.
The seed beads and the 4 mm spacers in the bracelet are Czech glass. The greens of the seed beads were chosen to match the color of the crystals in the pin.
I used a form of off-loom weaving to create these pieces. The thread is Fireline (aka fishing line), so don't worry if it gets wet. It is soft to the touch and drapes easily. I used the tubular herringbone stitch in the necklace and peyote stitch in the bracelet. The bracelet is strung on Beadalon beading wire. This wire is coated with nylon and will not rust.
When I make a piece of jewelry, I try, when possible, to use the same beads to make the clasp. In that way the clasp enhances rather than detracts from the piece.
