What I love about this necklace is its dimensionality. It is hard to see in the pictures but the centers where the cream beads are along the chain and pendant are raised. This makes for a very interesting weave. The other aspect that I love is the sparkle from the pear teardrops. I have been eyeing up all sorts of fun top-drilled teardrops at my local bead store to experiment with in this necklace. Later this fall I will be teaching this necklace. I can't wait to see what my students will come up with colorwise.
I had my husband snap a couple of pictures of me wearing the necklace. (I should have chosen a better top to show it off) I can tell that I will wear this a lot this winter with my higher necked shirts!!
I have finally been getting back on the designing bandwagon. I went through quite a dry spell this year between our schedule and some other issues. It feels so good to get the beads back in my hands and feel ideas happening.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at what I have been up to.
The pattern for this necklace is available at A Beadaful World and at NLP Bead Design.
