I used chevron chain to create the beaded collar in a deep shade of matte purple, with hints of bright chartreuse green. The combination of vibrant and muted colors is the perfect backdrop for the rivoli, which features a variety of colors including orange, purple and green. The outside edge of the necklace is decorated with large seed beads in bright violet, and closes with a beaded button and loop clasp.
Dimensions: The beaded rivoli is 2 cm (0.8 inches) wide. The necklace is 52 cm (20.5 inches) long, including the clasp. When the clasp is secured, the collar has an inside circumference of 44 cm (17.3 inches). The beaded button measures 2 cm (0.8 inches) across.
Wine and grapes were the inspiration for this piece - the velvety matte purple and juicy lime green seed beads combine fruity and sophisticated themes. The crystal rivoli at the center of the collar is encased in a beaded peyote stitch bezel in matching colors, and is sewn directly to the beadwork.
Materials used in this piece include Japanese and Czech glass seed beads, and a Swarovski Elements crystal rivoli. The entire piece is woven with durable fused nylon thread, which provides lasting beadwork that won’t stretch or lose its shape. The collar has a beautiful, flexible drape and is lightweight enough for everyday wear.
This one of a kind design comes wrapped in tissue, packed securely with clean, repurposed bubble wrap or foam sheet, and shipped in a durable Canada Post cushion mailer.
