Purple and Silver Necklace with Wire Wrapped Pendant

About this design:

I created this necklace with grape and purple faceted round beads with silver leaf beads used as spacers. I placed the beads onto beading wire secured it with crimp ends. I attached a pewter toggle clasp for the closure. The necklace is 27.5 inches long not including pendant.

I used wire to form the pendant and attached amethyst bicones and silver beads around the outer edge and silver beads on the inside. I used a smaller wire for the weave on the inside of the pendant. The pendant is approx. 3 inches long and 2.5 inches wide

For the piece in the center, I used wire as the base and a smaller wire to attach the bicones and silver beads. I used the smaller wire to attach it to the center of the pendant.

I created the bail by wrapping wire and coiling the ends then bending it into position for the necklace.

I used 12 mm grape and purple faceted round beads, metal leaf beads, 11/0 metal silver beads, 4 mm amethyst bicones, 10 mm silver beads, 16, 20 and 24 gauge silver craft wire, beading wire, crimp ends, jumprings and a pewter toggle clasp.
