You've shopped for everyone else, now it's time for YOU!
After many hours and lots of detailed beading...here it is! If you saw me at an art fair during November onward of this year, you probably saw me wearing a similar creation. The myriad of beads that waterfall from this silk and beaded one of a kind neckpiece are now available to you.
There are over 30 strings of beads hand knotted on waxed linen. Interwoven with tied and knotted silk, this necklace is right in style with todays layered trends and accentuates the nature of buying and dressing ones self in handmade spirit-infused accoutrements.
I've used peanut butter jasper, sterling, glass, trade beads, clay, pistachio shells, betel nuts, measuring tape, turquoise, bamboo, hematite, bone, sea shells, marble, horn, green turquoise, dominoes, mother of pearl, stamped chop sticks, limestone, bamboo coral and TattooDream rubber stamped beads. There are many more.
The length is adjustable and left untied so you can tie it however short or long you prefer. It's 36" long and can be tied in a bow behind your neck. This flexibility allows for various necklines to be accentuated and adds even more versatility to this artful necklace that goes with everything! (Okay, maybe not plaid, but darn close!) The beaded strands vary from 8" to 16".
This is a statement piece of wearable art, not for the faint of heart. You'll derive 'ohhs' and 'awes' and visible fondling while this piece envelopes you. This necklace and an evocative fragrance are all you need to set the party afire!
It's easy and fun to wear and not nearly as heavy as it looks. Total weight is 12 oz.
Domestic shipping is FREE!
