These things intrigue me:
- Real gemstones
- Multi-strand necklaces
Combine them, and I’m over the top with delight.
Choker necklaces fit snugly around the neck. Yet, each presentation looks different.
In Butterflies R Free, the oblong focal, a beadweaving encompassing a butterfly cabochon below a piece of tiger eye, hangs nearly four inches.
A focal of similar size looks entirely different on a multi-strand presentation of citrine.
The warm yellow-toned gemstone, citrine, often referred to as “the stone of success,” stands up to daily wear and looks positively yummy when mixed with clear quartz and other faceted glass. Who could not love this piece?
Beadweaving Tangerine Treatment uses freshwater and coin pearls as its necklace foundation. Once again, a beadweaving focal fits snugly at the bottom of one’s neck. In this instance, a tri-strand extender lets the completed necklace extend five more inches.
For those who prefer necklaces without a focal, I have a solution. Wear two.
This 10-strand garnet is a prime example.
Yes, over-the-top wins everytime in my studio. It’s a statement!
What’s your statement necklace of choice?
