A recent addition to the Big Skies Jewellery Collection in my Etsy shop, is this chunky double strand Amethyst Statement Necklace featuring gold shell pearl accents.
I usually start off at my beading table with a fairly specific design idea in mind….
But, this does sometimes get tweaked as the necklace takes shape. Initially I was going to make two shorter strands and suspend from a chunky brass chain…..
As I worked however, I decided to rather have two strands composed completely of the amethyst tooth beads and the gold shell pearls. I really liked the floral effect the two strands produced as they formed a collar for the neckline.
I also changed the original toggle and bar clasp – although this necklace is designed to be worn quite high almost at choker level, I decided to make it a little more versatile, so I changed the closure over to a chunky lobster clasp with an extender chain.
…and the final result.
