Jasper & Cat's Eye Necklace - Sterling silver - Beaded Pearls, Stone - InVintageHeaven
This glorious green creation started with the beautiful green jasper and white cat's eye cabochon pendant. This vintage piece is done in a sterling silver setting with twisted rope edge and silver dot accent design. The glowing white cats eye enhances the soft white matrix on the green swirled stone.
I have beaded this with a collection of gemstones, faceted emerald green glass, pearls and silver metal! Some of the stones include ruby in zoisite, green jasper. Beautiful dyed coin pearls, green pearls and freshwater pearl as additional accents and texture. It is finished off with a sterling silver clasp.
"Specialized Balanced Bead Technique" - At first glance my beading appears to be a random selection of beads. It is much more time consuming as it is more carefully chosen to balance both color and size within each bead-strand as well as the other strands.
It is finished off with a sterling clasp by the Karen Hill Tribe from Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. The toggle is handmade by the Karen Hill Tribe people using methods passed down for generations.
