Christmas for Izzy

About this design:

I had made a tan colored necklace like this a couple months ago and my granddaughter asked for one with the above colors. I’ll have to come up with something for earrings to match ( not too dangling)- any ideas welcome.


Toho 11/0 Navajo white seed beads with silver, jet and coral Czech glass fire polish beads(3mm) . 4 mm Persian turquoise fire polish beads. Silver findings.

    This is so lovely Robin. I guess this like a choker, isn’t it. So…she already knows what she’s getting, but the earrings can be a surprise. How about a simple little Turquoise brio , maybe dangling from a sterling link.

    If you have any more of the turquoise beads, or other beads of that color, maybe make a simple drop bead with a bead cap or 2 to dress it up. You can just put it on a headpin and above that add some contrasting colored bead, like silver or black? Hang on an ear wire. It won’t be too dangly. Nice job on the collar. This is a really nice Christmas present for your granddaughter.

    Yes it’s a choker- I like y’all’s earring idea- I think I have some real turquoise brood that would work thx for the ideas – this is to go with jeans, boots and a hat. And I broke down and bought this hoodie

    Great design and the color is outstanding! This is a wonderful gift for your granddaughter. Simple drop ear rings would be perfect with this style.

    Sweet necklace for a young lady. I can see why she would request one from her talented grandmother.

    Robin, this is absolutely magnificent! I really like the colors. When you mentioned on the previous post about making this, I didn’t imagine the base color to be white–but I must say, it will look fantastic around the neck, and the intricacy of the stitch will ‘pop’ for sure. I love the Simmental cow motif on the hoodie–I think I want one too! Has Izzy seen the choker yet? Can’t wait to hear how she liked it!

    Beautiful choker. I think some stud earrings would look nice with it – wonderful for a young lady. Beautiful cow Crystal.
