Three weeks ago I made a post asking which of three projects you would like to see first. I didn't get that much feedback so I started on this necklace.
I have used a key with a glass cabochon, which is a piece of glass polished evenly. Under the glass there is a beautiful image of a bird. I think finding the perfect image for this necklace took me almost as long as making the necklace itself. But I'm glad I was so stubborn to find the perfect piece since I think it really makes the whole thing very coherent.
I have used blue fresh water pearls with a hint of pink (that match the image perfectly). I also used crystal AB polished beads that give a hint of pink and blue. These are the ones that look clear, but catch the light like a prism.
I also have some blue wax beads with silver beadcaps and two silver colored birds.
The beaded part measures 78cm (about 30" - a so called "opera" length) and the key is 7x3cm.
This necklace will eventually be available in my shop (either etsy, zibbet or any other I find. If you have any tips, let me know) for under $30+shipping. If you are interested in buying it leave a comment below or e-mail me (address by viewing my complete profile top right)
