I just finished this beadwoven necklace last night:
In case you are a beader, I used several techniques to create this piece- freeform peyote, ladder stitch, right angle weave (RAW) stitch, fringe, tubular peyote and RAW stitches.
I first started creating the freeform pendant section, which first looked like this:
I next created the tubular RAW necklace strap, then decided that the focal point of the pendant was too weak, so then I decided to add some beaded Swarovski rivoli bling as my focal point:
Now I am planning my next one- a class sample beaded piece for my Freeform Beading and Quilting class.
Carla, I love your necklace. I haven’t beaded in years and never made anything this beautiful.
Stunning! Can’t wait to see your next one Carla!
Thank you, linda-kaye, jan, and Doreen, for taking the time to stop by and write! I am supposed to be combining my beading with quilting, but keep getting side tracked by making jewelry instead. My next jewelry piece is already in the works, and my next quilted, beaded project is still waiting to be realized. 🙂
What a beautiful piece of jewelry. Love, love, love those colors. It seems I end with those colors in most of my quilts and yarn projects too! Looking forward to seeing more of your free form jewelry pieces.
Colors are amazing as is workmanship! Very cool piece!!
