The individual pieces of hand tatted lace are made with high quality cotton thread in black and connected together with silver plated chains creating a draped look across the back. I added black swarovski crystals to the chains and lace as I worked and finished with a large German crystal in the front section.
The back drapes down about 9"(22.86cm) from the shoulder motifs. The shortest chain section including lace in front is about 19"(48.26cm) and when unclasped is about 24"(61cm) to slide over your head.
Yes, the back will pull the front lace close to your neck, but the shape of the lace allows it sit comfortably on your neck without any choking sensation.
This piece in also available in white for brides here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/103276423/tatted-lace-back-drop-necklace-tatted or can be created in any other available thread colors upon request though some colors will require extra time to acquire matching swarovski rounds and crystals.
