Gilded Frame Necklace Pattern


This necklace is made up of several different components that come together to create a sophisticated and complex piece of wearable art.The pendant which is the show piece of the necklace is a diamond shaped dimensional frame. The top of the frame has an overlay which is reminiscent of gilding.In the center of the frame is a diamond shaped insert made up of a large pearl framed out with small crystals. Hanging from the bottom of the pendant is an embellished bead drop with a bezeled pearl at its bottom.The straps of the necklace are made up of different components. One of the components matches the insert in the frame but on a smaller scale.The rest of the necklace strand is a herringbone rope with open segments and inset pearls.Each segment in the rope is embellished with a tiny Fleur De Le leaf made out of beads, and pearls.The closure is a lovely little button with a loop at the ends of the necklace strap.
