I love the jewelry designs from past decades and always derive my inspiration from something of the these eras.
This necklace was designed after the beautiful Art Deco rhinestone clips worn on dresses of that time. I used the Bead Embroidery Technique to stitch tiny rhinestones, seed beads, and glass cabochons from the Deco days.
This piece is called “Twilight” because the center blue Druzy reminds me of the crisp blue winter sky peeking through a black silhouette of trees during that time of the day.
The necklace strands are comprised of iridescent bugle beads that dance with aqua and blue seed beads in a graceful twist around the neck. The antique silver bead caps are similar in style to the jewelry that was so popular during the filigree era of early 1900.
Thank you allowing me to share my necklace reminiscent of days gone by.
