This jewelry set has been created upon the request by a dear friend. She was originally contemplating a set with necklace, earrings, and bracelet. Unfortunately I have run out of some of these seed beads - in particular, the ones that I had purchased a long while ago and which is now no longer replaceable.
This jewellery set, comprising of beaded necklace/pendant and a pair of matching earrings is yet awaiting the review of the requester.
"Pearly Earth & Sea" commissioned jewelry set.
Here are some additional photos to give viewer a better look at the details.
This set has been based on a tutorial by Heather Collin's "Butterfly Clasp". I adapted it and used the idea to make a pendant and earrings set.
The main bead weaving stitch employed is Peyote stitch. The pendant is "tubed" around a rhodium plated chain.
The snake chain is rhodium plated over copper - a high quality chain. Rhodium is one of the most expensive precious metals on the market (about 6 times more expensive than gold by weight). It is a rare metal, very hard with a high shine and silvery finish. Rhodium is virtually anti-tarnish.
This next photo shows the front and back of the earrings.
