Red Pyramid

About this design:

I have been working on this piece for a while now , still trying to figure out if I liked it. The Stones are Red tiger gemstones and gold beads and light yellow gold beads to the end. The gemstones fall like a pyramid design. I don't know I am still trying to figure it out

    The stones are pretty and its a neat concept but it doesn’t look like the stones have enough support to accomplish what you want. Maybe if you wired them into the shape you want?

    Help me out Gail Layne because I have been messing around with this necklace for the longest. And I just can’t seem to get it right if I put it on it seems to convey the design I want to get at, but taking a pic of it does not show it. And then it feels heavy and I am thinking of taking it apart again take out the middle strand add it to the other four strands and let the beads run across with four chain attachments on either side. What do you think.

  4. Gail Layne
    Gail Layne says:

    Yes! I think that would work much better! I’d try that first.
    There is another option also. I couldn’t find a pic of exactly what I mean so this pic is only what the first row would look like. You would make other rows with the second row being a bit shorter and attaching to to bottom of the first row, etc.
