This was created by stephaniegibson.etsy.com for the Beads4You Winter Challenge.
In the challenge, crafters from www.etsy.com compete to create new and different designs, despite starting with the same set of beads.
This necklace is long enough to be worn doubled with the clasp in the front, or as a long single strand that will fall to mid-torso.
She has been enjoying wire wrapping lately and wanted to incorporate that technique into her entry.
‚The various focal beads were just begging to be jumbled together in a big dangly pendant and the large shell flower seemed the perfect anchor,‘ she says.
‚I interspersed the wirewrapped beads in the necklace with a large, flat, patterned, sterling chain. Then I added small dangles around the bottom third of the necklace to echo the larger dangles in the pendant.‘
All metal is sterling silver.
The necklace – not including the pendant – is 31 inches (78.5cm) long.
The pendant adds an additional 4 inches (10cm) of length.
