Tear Drop Necklace


The necklace has an elegant center bridge of beadwork teardrops.These teardrops have a center bezeled Chaton which provides a platform to shape the bezel into a teardrop.Pearls and Crystals add sparkle and texture to the teardrops. The curvature of the necklace is created by connecting each teardrop together with bridging loops of beadwork. Supple pearl and seedbead necklace straps made up of a modified right-angle weave stitch finish off the necklace design.The clasp is a handmade beadwork button with a loop attachment.
