Nine Lives Necklace

This is a Liisa Turunen design, created by me.
A fabulous design, as beautifully crafted on the back side (see last photo), as it is on the front. She leaves no detail unattended!
Cubic right angle weave, bezzling/encasing gorgeous Swarovski stones, nickel-plated Toho seed beads … the whole thing, from technique to materials, was a joy to stitch! A peyote-stitch toggle finishes off the CRAW rope chain.

I wore it to see the Maryland Symphony Orchestra perform yesterday, “Romantic Rachmaninoff – 2nd Piano Concerto” … I felt elegant in my new necklace!

Materials: toho seed beads swarovski crystals swarovski pearls fireline toho bugle beads swarovski fancy stones

Techniques: craw (cubic right angle weave) raw (right angle weave) beaded bezel peyote stitch
