Shades of Autumn

About this design:

I made this set a while ago and it sat neatly tucked in a box. With the onset of autumn, I am bringing it to my Etsy shop.

The necklace construction uses various rope stitches and seemless transitions between them - thanks to Beth Stone's books for the idea and technique!

    What a lovely design. What are those faceted stones?

    Cant take credit for this design – it goes to Beth Stone, author of a couple of books I own :) .

    Not sure what gems these are – may be someone can help identify…

    I really like faceted gemstones. The facets reflect light and add a subtle layer of texture and a gentle shimmer.

    Very pretty. I think the stones look like Agate of some sort. :)

    Two sides to every story crochet and wire necklace

    Every story has two sides, and this necklace has two sides – each side features different seed beads strung onto 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.

    The green circle beads are from Lima Beads ( and are glass garden transparent bottle mini glass bottle rings 11-12 mm).

    Sonali, this is really lovely….recognised the design/style as i have Beth’s book (a favourite), but it works beautifully with the subtle colour combination you’ve chosen compared to her use of bright primaries! i like!
