Chatter

Every story has two sides


About this design:

Every story has two sides, and this necklace has two sides - each side features different seed beads strung onto the same variegated crochet thread. After stringing, the thread and beads are crocheted. The crochet chains are then attached to green glass circle beads and buttons, and connected with silver artistic wire wraps. The clasp is handmade from silver artistic wire.

The centre drop is made from coiled silver artistic wire, wrapped with green and dark silver seed beads, as used in one of the crochet chains.

Components:

DMC 5 perle thread (variegated), seed beads in sizes 6, 8 and 11, glass garden transparent bottle mini glass bottle rings (from Lima Beads), retro buttons, silver artistic wire (18 and 22 gauge), antique silver wire (22 guage.
