Beaded necklace with intersecting mesh chain. A modern classic with a clean and sparkly look. Understated and bold.
Gifted to my soul friend on her 50th
Swarovski Crystal AB (aurore borealis) and white copper go very well together; an elegant pairing. This was originally made in a set (but got separated!)
This Swarovski necklace is made solely with A Grade white copper mesh chain and lots of Swarovski 5328 XILION bicone crystals (Crystal AB). It is finished off with a large hallmarked sterling silver toggle. An overall casual elegance.
I have taken quite a number of photos with different backgrounds and from various angles. it is very hard to photographically capture the silver sheen together with the elusive beautiful iridescence of the Swarovski CABs (Crystal ABs).
Necklace length: 42 cm / 16.5 in
Width: 1 cm / 0.4 in
Weight (net): 25g
This shows a close up of the V section - gives you an idea how it was done. The stitch is RAW (Right Angle Weave)
In those early days when I first made this, I had no idea what the stitch was called. I was later informed at the Australian Beading Forum as to the name of the stitch. It did throw me for a loop when they told me to go RAW!
The beaded sections are wire-sewn on to the white copper mesh chain. It is threaded through sterling silver French bullion (gimp) for a much better finish.
The white copper mesh chain was cut out from finished chains that I had previously purchased.
And that is the story of how this "Silver Look" necklace came to be.
