Metropolis Handbeaded Necklace

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


With cascading diagonals designed to evoke a metropolitan skyline, I envisioned this necklace to adorn the neck of a New York socialite at a swanky soiree during the Art Deco period. This design was inspired by a recent trip to NYC where I visited the Empire State Building. Upon entering the building, I immediately noticed the plaque (shown in last photo) and thus the shape of my pattern was born.

I used only Miyuki Delica beads and stitched the center portion in my own original design and color pattern using herringbone stitch. The top choker portion is stitched in brick and peyote stitches and has an authentic period button closure (metal content unknown, may be pewter-please convo if you wish to have changed to other material).

Measures 7" from top edge to bottom of glass pendant. Width across patterned section is 5". Choker portion measures 1/2" in width.

I love my earrings. They're light; they're fun but not even close to gaudy. Perfect for every day wear. Thank you so much for these custom earrings! 100% recommend - for yourself and as gifts!
