The focal point of the necklace is a large faceted Swarovski stone captured within a unique bezel. Graceful loops of beadwork and pearls surround the bezel and connect to three multi-layered circular rounds at the base of the bezel.The necklace straps are made up of herringbone stitch with embellished sections of pearls and contrasting beads.The closure for the necklace is matching circular rounds of beadwork connected together to create a double loop button.
Skill Level - Advanced
Stitches used for this project - Herringbone, Netting and Peyote stitches
Note: Due to the way the bezel is constructed, I have found that not all seedbead beads will work for this project. The seedbeads need to be on the larger size…like Dura-coats, Permanent finish and metallic beads. In general, Toho brand beads run larger then Miyuki.
