This set has been "in the works"
for a bit longer than usual
but is now completed
and I couldn't be more thrilled with the results.
This necklace and earring set
is fashioned with Crystal Copper Swarovski crystals
in the rondelle shapes and the cubist shapes
as well as round Swarovski Montana sapphire crystals.
Each crystal bead is flanked by sterling silver beads
and each bead station is individually wire wrapped and
connected to each other with sterling silver wire.
Short segments of sterling silver chain were
also incorporated to add detail to this stunning necklace.
Earrings were made with similar shaped Swarovski crystals
in the same color palette using smaller beads
and sterling silver chain, all
suspended from sterling silver lever back ear wires.
This substantial necklace measures approximately
37 1/2 inches in length and can be worn as a single strand
or doubled up to keep the focus up towards the face.
It lends itself to more dressy occasions
and will surely be a topic of conversation!
