Necklace: Bohemian Pearl
Woven beaded necklace of aventurine gemstone beads, glass pearls, and vintage crystals, in tones of peach and cream.
This necklace is inspired by the romantic and beautiful story of Anne of Bohemia. I love making woven pieces, or creating wearable ornaments that look slightly out of time, or pieces that reference a meaningful period in history.
The gemstone highlighted here is Aventurine; it is a beautiful stone, and the red aventurine version, in its peachy/salmon color range, is popular for good reason. The focal pendant is also aventurine–a smoothly rounded cabochon–and the beaded bezel that surrounds it is woven with seed pearls, Japanese seed beads, and some vintage czech glass.
The strand, after the aventurine beads, is finished with luxurious baroque glass pearls, and then a simple sterling silver lobster clasp with ring.
Materials used: glass pearls, aventurine gemstone, vintage glass crystal rondelles, glass seed beads, silver plated pewter accent beads, sterling silver lobster clasp and ring.
