This listing has been RESERVED for Tammara Scott, if you are not Tammara please do not purchase this neckpiece.
This piece was a creation for the Victorian Beading Society's 2010 Beading Challenge.
The Challenge being that all entrants are given the same selection of beads. The Challenge to create something with them with the addition of as many other beads that the entrant desires. Thus Midas Tidepools was created.
The 9 lampwork beads that you see have all been bezzeled using peyote stitch, the green cylinder beads are gold lined and are quite expensive along with the gold Delicas but together they are so very beautiful. I have woven the bezzeled lampworked beads together, then woven various sized golden Swarovski round & wave pearls across the bezzeled bib style arrangement. The large focal Swarovski crystal stone (Article 1201) is a special custom coating, it is the colour 'Brandy'. I have used netting stitch and peyote to bezel this stone. A swag of glass cylinder beads, Swarovski bicones and pearls is suspended beneath this magnificent focal stone. Included with the bezzeled lampwork beads are two rare Swarovski oval crystal stones (18x13mm)in 'Diorion' a vintage special effect colour from the 1950's.
A single focal circle of sparkling Swarovski bicones and golden & green Delicas is woven against the bezzeled lampwork beads. The strap is largely herringbone with a portion of the strap being embellished right angle weave.
Flowing beaded and sparkling 'tendril' type straps will trail down your neck and back and would be sublime with your hair up and a backless dress.
The colours of this piece are aqua, blue, a green palatte of iris, pale and light green and gold. The Swarovski colors are Golden pearls, Erenite, Palace Green Opal, Brandy and Diorion.
Keeping with the ocean theme the neckpiece closes with a gorgeous vintage mother of pearl button and a peyote and netting stitched clasp.
This is a never to be repeated design and incorporates many, many hours of careful work and particularly expensive elements. It is a sparkling one of a kind statement bib style neckpiece.
Thank you for looking.
