A wedding necklace for Preciosa's contest
Here's a necklace I made for Preciosa Ornela's contest (well why not try). This month's theme is wedding, and I wanted to depart a bit from the stereotypical all-white jewellery. With a perfectly white dress, some colorful accent is needed for the bride to look impeccable. I've decided to add some warm, orange colours to the traditional white.This necklace, made with lots of Preciosa seed & fire polished beads, would be a great and elegant addition for a momentous occasion such as wedding, but it also has the more practical use and would look amazing with a plain dress or a blouse with a deep neckline or, on the contrary, with a bateau neckline. I wanted to make something that would also be not typically 'disposable', for a single use, as most of wedding clothes and jewellery is.
About the making of this necklace: what can I say, beads from Preciosa align perfectly with little help, and they're great not only for embroidery, but also bead crocheting or bead weaving, not to mention soutache, so this necklace was a pleasure to make.
