This necklace is an original freeform bead mosaic pendant necklace, my own design, with individual "units" that give it a free floating appearance. I came up with this idea and thought the units would look great on an antiqued gold chain and voila! I tried it on for my husband (he is usually rather ho-hum about some of my "way out there" jewelry creations) but he loved this one! With chains and bib style pendants being so popular right now, I am giving some of my beadwork a new twist.

Necklace is comprised of 7 individual "units" that are beaded freeform with various size seedbeads, showcasing other beads from my own collection. Each "mosaic" takes about 2 hours to complete. Necklace features an off-white carved bone man-in-the-moon bead, a gold glass star bead, leopardskin jasper beads, carved flower gemstone beads, glass flower & leaf beads, and I added a beautiful ivory bone flower bead that I rescued from a vintage bracelet. I have used neutral fall colors so this necklace will go great with all your fall & winter colors - bronze, brown, gold, winter white, celery green, tan - then into spring & summer if you prefer the more neutral colors. I have used beads with a bit of sparkle to give it some pizazz. Antiqued gold necklace chain is 18" long, but can be fastened shorter to more of a choker length with lobster claw clasp. In photos, I am showing necklace fastened at different lengths in photos.

Bib pendant part of necklace is 6" wide at widest part, by 4" long at longest part. A real statement piece - add it to your plain necklines to give them an instant designer look!
I recently wore a similar necklace (just had to keep one for myself!) to a local bead show - it sure got alot of attention and compliments, with people stopping me to look at it more closely and examine the beading details. This necklace is a handmade original from me to you!
