Description

With a lovely religious cross pendant as its focal, this handmade beaded green and gold pearl necklace is a genuine eye-catcher. The cross pendant is from TierraCast (made in the USA) and part of their Viva Mexicana line. Lengthwise it measures around one inch. The overall design of the pendant is based on a decorative style of Mexican folk art that includes crosses, pottery, and figurines. At the center of this ornate 22K gold-plated antiqued pewter piece is an eight-petaled flower bordered by an eight-pointed star. The central floral theme is continued in the arms of the cross, which are decorated with leaf or petal forms. Both sides of the cross are ornamented, but the figures on the front of the pendant are slightly raised and those on the back are simply etched. All together, this focal is a beautiful and meaningful religious piece.

To complement the cross, I chose green iridescent and gold glass pearls, white wooden rounds, and earthy tan seedbeads. I wanted to use green because it is the color of growth, harmony, and peace, and I wanted to use gold as a reminder of the divine. The green pearls (4mm, 6mm) have a shimmering of gold on them that makes them especially light-catching and that provides a good match for the gold pearls (6mm). The white wooden beads (7mm) symbolize simplicity and purity of heart, and the tan seedbeads, which were made in India and have a rustic quality, represent earthiness and humility. As a decorative extra, and to represent the strength of faith as well as the four evangelists (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), I used a quartet of TierraCast oak leaf charms at the front of the necklace strand. I also decided that a TierraCast leaf and hook clasp would dovetail nicely with the oak leaves. As I was designing this necklace, all these elements came together so well and so naturally, both in meaning and in style, that I felt very happy indeed!

This necklace also includes gold-filled twist crimps, gold-plated wireguards, high-quality 49-strand beading wire, and TierraCast gold-on-pewter daisy spacers and oval jumprings.

For the details of the necklace design, we will begin at the center of the strand, where the cross pendant is hung. In this central position is a quartet of smaller green iridescent pearls flanked on both sides by two tan seedbeads, two more small green pearls, another pair of seedbeads, and a final small green pearl. The pendant is connected by a TierraCast oval jumpring to the center of pearl quartet, and an oak leaf is strung between each pair of seedbeads, with four oak leaves in all. Next, on either side of strand is the following:

- A initial bead group of three larger green pearls flanked by a split pair of gold pearls and then a split pair of white wooden beads, with daisy spacers bordering the white beads
- A single gold-tan seed bead
- Another bead group like the initial one
- Another single gold-tan seed bead
- Another bead group like the initial one but with the second white wooden bead becoming part of a trio of white wooden beads
- A gold pearl bordered by daisy spacers and then another trio of white wooden beads, another daisy spacer, and one last gold pearl
- A bead group with six tan seedbeads bordered by two pairs of small green pearls

The necklace strand is finished off on both sides with a gold-filled twist crimp between two daisy spacers and a wireguard. The crimps hold secure the beading wire, and the wireguards help to protect the wire. The leaf and hook clasp is attached to the strand with oval jumprings.

This carefully handmade and meaningful religious cross necklace is princess length (around 23 inches) and comes in a wrapped kraft-style box, all set for gift giving! With earthy elements and an overall elegance, this would make a lovely gift for a religious person or anyone with a thoughtful approach to life.

(Customers always did purchase them, though.) I always show photos of custom orders to the customer.
