Long Silver Beadwork Lariat (BW135)
Everyone loves a lariat - they are so versatile!
This one is in St.Petersburg stitch with silver Czech seed beads and matt silver Czech firepolish beads with tiny Japanese drop beads in gunmetal. It is so slinky!
It comes with a beadwork toggle so you can catch the two sides together wherever you want. Or leave it off and wrap the necklace around two or three times, or ... the possibilities are endless.
Hint: when removing the toggle pull the side with the downward facing drop beads through first to give you more room within the toggle to pull through the upward facing drop beads. I made the toggle so it fits just right - not to tight that it can't be moved up or down to your liking and not too loose that it works its way off. To be honest, this was my third attempt!
This is one of those necklaces that can be worn elegantly long for evening or wrapped around to make it a bit shorter for daytime. Or long with jeans ... or short with a cocktail dress. You'll love wearing it and people are sure to admire it.
The lariat is 50" (127.5cm) long.
