A Bead Embroidery Necklace for Spring and Summer

See blogs and businesses for USA

During the spring and summer I like to lose weight, not just for myself and the impending swimsuit season, but I like to pare down my jewelry creations as well, and design them to be lighter weight for the breezy, warming weather of spring and the hot and sticky days of summer.

This necklace is a lightweight example of less is more in the warmer weather. The ultra feminine, sensuous and swirly medallion drapes delicately from the center of a fine cable.

It is a simple, 3" x 1 1/2" bead woven and embroidered medallion designed around a cube Venetian foiled Sommerso glass bead. The pendant incorporates 3mm round coral beads, rose, bronze and coppery colored glass beads. The bail is bead woven in peyote stitch and slips over an 18" rose-colored cable.

The pendant is backed in pink leather. This piece is currently showcased on my Etsy site.
