This blue and green necklace is made using three pieces of sea glass and needle bead weaving. Each piece of glass has a mount created by weaving rows of beads around it, on a backing of two layers, interfacing and then leather. The pieces are then joined with needle bead weaving and the necklace completed the same way. I chose the pieces of glass so that I could graduate the colours from dark blue through green to white at the other end.
I made this piece to be similar to another necklace sold last year, that one featured in a book of beaded jewellery. This one is similar in basic design but otherwise very different. I have included a vintage Swarovski marguerite crystal in bright blue, inside a cone of beading in the darker side, and a little silver coloured diamante rondelle in the lighter side, this is from a broken necklace, there are old, crystal, flat bi-cones in each side of the rondelle as well.
The fastener is an old diamante button, in white base metal, with a beaded loop. The necklace sits just below the collar bones and measures 43cm.
Most of my work is inspired by the sea and this one is too, it was made to replace one I sold last year which I called Rock Pools, it was more even in colour, mostly blues. I decided to make another one in a similar style I like the idea of the graduated shades, to represent to colours of the sea from the surf to the depths. All my work is designed as I make it, i always have a rough idea of what I'm aiming for but almost never make drawings or plan beyond selecting colours for the work. It can lead to issues, as with this one, the cone to contain the Swarovski crystal gave me some trouble but I got it right in the end.
