I wove a freshwater pearl with golden seed beads to create a rose feature. I used strong fireline to weave the seed beads around the freshwater pearl. I made a circle with the seed beads and then wove the pearl on, then working in rounds I added the petals.
Around the rose sit clusters of light topaz Swarovski crystals which I wrapped with antique bronze wire and strung onto the necklace.
I added an extra chain for a little twist on the traditional necklace style. I love the feel of this necklace as it is so shimmery and warm.
The chain is antique bronze which I think contrasts nicely with the golden tones of the necklace and creates an earthy effect.
I was inspired by the idea of golden, warm colours.
