Christmas Eve Necklace
peyote, netting, coral, right angle weave stitches, embroidery
Toho seed beads 11/0, Delica seed beads 11/0 and 15/0; vintage Italian bugle beads size 2, Swarovski crystals, pearls size 3 and 5, ribbons
I made the base of the necklace using netting stitch of my own design, I used for that vintage
Italian bugle beads and seed beads. All elements were made separately: golden three-dimensional
flowers with red petals in the center, and golden fringes with red beads and Swarovski crystals.
I decided not to create a special clasp for the necklace and I used two ribbons of matching
gold and red colors to add some more festive accent.
