I wanted to make a necklace for winter (I am in Australia), a substantial piece that can hold its own over bulky jumpers.
This scarf necklace is made with 14 strands of glass seed beads, glass bugle beads and rose quartz beads, strung onto professional nylon beading thread. To keep the strands together, I made a sleeve – woven with even more seed beads in an even number peyote stitch – which is going to sit at the back of your neck.
The strands are different length, longest measures 52 inches.
The whole necklace weighs 300 grams and took me well over 10 hours to make. It looks great on, not something that will get lost in between bulky winter clothing.
