One of My Ornate Works of Wearable Art
by Patricia C Vener.
I wanted to build something around the unakite (stone) beads and at the same time I wanted to experiment with the flat spiral weave.
Very specifically, I wanted to see if I could make it branch.
And of course I wanted to make it a major work of art using other weaves and stitches as well.
I decided to make a faux netting that looks like Renaissance lace.
I worked this necklace in parts and then joined and adapted them on a half display form.
Seed beads, faceted stone beads, Swarovski crystals are all included in this one!
Somewhere I have pictures of the work in progress, but of course I can’t find them now.
Maybe on my tablet… or phone….
