THIS NECKLACE WAS FEATURED ON THE JULY 2012 COVER OF BEAD TRENDS MAGAZINE.

This necklace was created for the Art Bead Scene January 2012 Challenge. The inspiration was a swatch of vintage wallpaper by William Morris in a trellis theme with flowers, leaves, birds and insects. The colors included shades of terra cotta, olive green, brown and mustard.

I chose to base my necklace around the flower element, as I had a little pile of my textured flower clasps ready to go. This necklace features a single-flower clasp with a toggle connection. I created little tongues of textured copper as a secondary focal, and a textured copper connector ring for the opposite side. The beads, starting from the flower clasp, include peach aventurine faceted teardrops, antique copper teardrop pearls, faceted glass in khaki, and two varieties of bronze pearls, the larger with a nice greenish hue. Silk ribbon in mustard forms the back of the necklace.

This necklaced measures 21" long, and will best fit a slimmer neck (please see the fourth photo for an idea of where it will hang). It can be lengthened very slightly (not more than an inch)--please convo me. All the copper in this necklace has been sealed with a high-grade lacquer to preserve patina and shine, and to prevent staining of clothes which can happen with naturally oxidizing metals.
