Saffie - Sapphire & Silver Beadwork Necklace (BB128)
The focal point of this necklace is a 14mm Swarovski crystal in sapphire blue. It is in a bezel setting of silver and sapphire blue Japanese Delica beads and framed in a beadwork triangle made with the same beads.
I made the chain using the same beads - the highest quality of seed beads - with the addition of 4mm Swarovski crystal bicones. I arrived at the chain after some experimentation with different kinds of rope for the necklace and found the chain the most suitable.
The whole necklace is a as light as a feather and very comfortable to wear. It has an elegance which means it can be worn dressed up for the evening, and a simplicity of style that gives it more versatility and can be worn during the day as well. I am really pleased with the look of this necklace- classic with a touch of deco about it, yet completely contemporary.
The necklace is 17.5" (455mm) long, fastening with a beadwork toggle clasp. The pendant is approximately 4.5cm.
I call this Saffie - because of the gorgeous sapphire colour and after a little blue-eyed girl I once knew.
