Black Dream

About this design:

This necklace was inspired because I was able to obtain some large freshwater pearls. The chain is my favorite Byzantine pattern, in bronze.


1/2" long dyed black freshwater pearls, bronze jump rings 22ga 3/32"

    What a sophisticated, classy look! I LOVE the black pearls; and your byzantine pattern chainmail is awesome! How long did it take to complete? Fantastic Job! :)

    I never remember to keep track of my time, since I have so many interruptions. Regular Byzantine in a larger size goes fast, I can make a bracelet in an hour, but this took awhile! Thanks for your kind comments.
