Peony One of a Kind Bead-Woven Necklace
With its subtle palette of dusty rose, maroon, ruby, strawberry, garnet, and pink, this lightweight bead-woven necklace statement necklace is one of my favorite creations so far this year. It took quite a long time to stitch each triangle. However, the process is engaging and I enjoyed every second. The triangles are dimensional; that is, they have a convex front/concave back (imagine a very shallow pyramid.) To top if off, the texture of the beads both looks and feels amazing.
This piece is an investment that will show off your love for art jewelry and craftsmanship. And you're sure to enjoy compliments every time you wear it.
The necklace is about 19" long. It can be shortened or lengthened on request (allow a few extra days for this to be done). The Peyote stitch triangles measure 3-1/2" wide x 3" high. They're suspended from 2 antiqued gold filigree beads, strands of 8mm carnelian beads and size 8/0 Picasso beads toward the back. The antiqued gold-tone toggle-style closure is easy to work and offers a dramatic finishing touch.
