I wanted to share with you my silver peridot crystal necklace featuring a sterling silver leaf pendant with crystals. This is a spring project using jewelry supplies from ArtBeads.com.
Necklace by Carla Barrett
I decided to bead the necklace using high quality delica seed beads and crystal accents. In the end, the simplicity of the necklace complements the lovely pendant.
For this project, I started with my focal pendant, the sterling silver leaf. This leaf is gorgeous in person and is certainly well made.
Then I made a matching beaded necklace using size 15/0 delica seed beads and Swarovski 3mm bicone peridot crystals. This was woven using Fireline and a sized 12 beading needle. I used a tri-stitch with the delica beads, then came back and stitched on the crystals.
This project is an easy one- as I wanted the sterling silver leaf to be the focal point. Thanks to ArtBeads.com for providing many of the supplies for my design. I am a blogging Designer for ArtBeads.com, and thus want to provide full disclosure of this relationship. They have been wonderful to work with and I also want to thank them for donating beads for my beading and quilting class at MQS recently.
Hope you enjoy this simple, but lovely, necklace.
