A fiber necklace of hand twisted cords, braided (plaited) with added beads.
Stone: 40mm Chinese Charoite donut,
Colors: purples and white
Length: 25 inches, Necklace has no clasp, and is long enough to fit over the head.
Each necklace starts with a stone or focus bead. Smaller beads are chosen to support and enhance the design. Coordinating colors of cotton thread and a metallic thread are hand twisted into a cord. Cords in different color combinations are woven into a multi-strand braid. Beads are threaded onto the cords during the weaving/braiding process. The ends are interwoven and secured with wrapping to complete the necklace.
I have enjoyed indulging in my love of blending colors, playing with threads, beads and weaving to craft this beautiful object for your personal adornment.
May you enjoy wearing it as much as I enjoyed making it.
These coordinating earrings have been sold (last photo). I can make some similar ones so send me a convo if you want earrings to match the necklace.
