I have fallen in love with making ndebele ropes (also known as tubular herringbone), and after seeing the twisted effect that occurs when different sizes of beads are combined I decided to pair silver and varying shades of blue to make this beautiful twisted rope.

It's named after a Greek sea-goddess, Amphitrite, who some called the personification of the sea itself. Amphitrite's offspring included seals and dolphins; and with Poseidon she had a son (Triton) and daughter (Rhode). In one version of the myth, Amphitrite fled from Poseidon's advances to Atlas, at the farthest ends of the sea; there the dolphin of Poseidon sought her through the islands of the sea, and finding her, spoke persuasively on behalf of Poseidon and was rewarded by being placed among the stars as the constellation Delphinus.

This piece is made from Czech glass beads in two sizes: the smaller beads are silver-lined clear glass, and the larger ones are all shades of blue with a beautiful matte finish. The contrasting colors and finishes are beautiful together, and the twist makes it extra special.

The rope is very versatile, too! Wear it wrapped around your neck once or twice, loop it through a donut focal to make a wonderful necklace for a pendant, or wrap it around your wrist several times to make a bracelet.

♦ Width: 1/4" (6mm)
♦ Length: 46" (116cm)
♦ Technique: ndebele rope (tubular herringbone)
♦ Materials: Czech glass beads, Fireline

♦♦ This is a one-of-a-kind piece and can't be altered, but if you really love the look of it and would like something similar, contact me. I'd be happy to create something special just for you.

Packaged in a beautiful gift box, perfect to give as a present to someone special or to yourself!
