This necklace is bead embroidered by hand. The African Pietersite focal has a peyote-stitched bezel centered on a traditional Celtic pattern. There are three blue tiger eye cabochons with one at the back with a hook and eye for easy wearing.
There is nothing more pleasing than to create a thing of beauty and know someone else will enjoy wearing it as much as I have enjoyed making it. With more than 20 years of experience in beading and jewelry design, my style unites a variety of beading techniques including embroidery, crochet, and peyote stitch. I love to seek out the perfect elements for my designs such as Swarovski crystals, natural stones, lampwork beads, pearls, Czech glass beads, Raku cabochons and seed beads. I also incorporate silver, gold, copper and pewter components. My beaded designs were on display for sale in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts shop in Richmond for more than ten years. My designs are now for sale on Etsy. TreatYourselfDesigns which I share with my good friend and fellow artist, Suzanne Peters.
