PASTEL PINK

Short Necklace - Pastel Pink

Vintage glass ovals from Czechoslovakia are woven into a ´Y´ style necklace with a g/f heart clasp. This weaving technique uses more beads than a knotted necklace and takes more time to do but the effect, I find, is so interesting.
Length: 16"

LILAC

Short Necklace - Lilac

Amethyst, pearls. Mother-of-Pearl rondelles, and carved Aquamarines are woven together to make this delicate yet organic-feeling necklace (think DNA). This necklace can be worn different ways.
Length: 16"

COUNTRY

Short Necklace - Country

I started with Mother-of-Pearl beads as a 'base' and then I added a random mix of colors and wove them together on super-strong thread. A hand-hammered toggle finishes this piece off.
Length: 16"

BLUES

Short Necklace - Blues

Blue pearls are woven in clusters to make a delicate necklace. A Chalcedony bead for the center adds a different shade of blue to this piece. This style can be custom-made in different colored pearls.

AURA

Short Necklace - Aura

Rutilated gold quartz crystal beads with accents of garnet rondelles and gold pearls were used in this woven necklace. A g/f heart clasp adds a finishing touch. There is a pair of earrings that match this necklace.

A cluster of shapes of African Agates mixed with red Sponge Coral are what I used for this necklace.

HEMA

Short Necklace - Hema

Hematite is an amazing stone. It is actually Iron Oxide. The color is so dramatic. I combined round and faceted beads. It has quite a ´sparkle´ to it.
Length: 16"

LULU

Short Necklace - Lulu

This is a sample of the LuLu style. This is available in faux pearls for Bridal. It also looks amazing in Black Onyx or Garnet. I use 10 strands of 4mm beads for the ´loops´ and 1-½ strands for the ´body´. I´ve done this style with random beads for a ´gypsy´ look. E-mail me or call me and I will make it for you. A simpler style of LuLu can be modified so that the loops are only in the center with the rest of the necklace woven. The price is dependent on the beads you choose.
Length: 18"

CORA

Short Necklace - Cora

I knotted 2 strands of coral on very strong thread. The spaces between make the look more delicate.
Length: 16" & 18"
