Here's a beautiful necklace I just finished. There are approximately 12 hours of labour in the gorgeous spiral weave rope chain....all those little beads woven in by hand.
The spiral weave forms the "chain" of the necklace and I used a bronze and ivory palette for it....tiny little 15/0 delicas and 10/0 metallic bronze seedbeads.
The pendant is a bronzite rectangular cabochon set in a bronze-finished polymer clay frame, made by the very talented Nathalie Girard of Canadian Rockies Art.
The necklace measures 22 1/2" in length, not including the pendant, and closes with a matching patterned brass toggle clasp.
