Galaxy is a bead embroidered piece created with a gorgeous compendium of rich deep amethyst purple and onyx black, highlighted with silver and copper. It features a silver plated scene of celestial balance which is surrounded by beautiful cabochons of amethyst and onyx, seed beads, freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals and stones. The seed beads create depth and texture with their various sizes and finishes, and most of the stones have been bezeled in such a manner that the beads stand out from the cabochons, creating a star burst effect around each. A strong section of beaded netting leads to a hand crafted, one of a kind copper toggle clasp made specifically for NEDbeads by the talented Hodgpodgerie here on Etsy. Galaxy measures 18" around the neckline, and the focal portion of the necklace drops 6 1/2".
