|Double Strand Jade and Pink Necklace||
A deliciously different, double strand necklace.
The centre bead in this necklace is an oval, flat jade bead. There are four strands of beads threaded into this centre piece. I have used 2 star shaped, aventurine beads, and 6 faceted, swarovski crystals in the chain of the necklace. Each one of these beads has 2 strands of tiny, seed beads threaded through them. The seed beads used are pink-lined, firepolised seed beads and aqua coloured, copper lined seed beads. The copper lining on the beads gives the aqua colour a wonderful shimmer and warmth.
At the bottom of the jade bead are 4 seed bead tassles, made with the same beads as in the necklace body. Each tassle is finished off with a faceted, swarovski crystal.
This necklace took 1.5 hours to complete.
The fastening on this necklace is a traditional loop and button type closure. I have used a round, green fluorite bead as a fastener. I love this fastening as it is very secure, looks fantastic and is great for people with allergies to even precious metals.
This necklace chain is 23 inches long. Including the jade bead and the tassles, the total necklace length is a little under 25 inches.
All of the beads used in this set are of the highest quality. I always use very strong beading thread and reinforce all fastenings.
