Holly Collar


Another in the collar series.  This one sporting bright red holly flowers, complete with brown berries.  I know – March is not exactly the time for Christmas colors, but the bright red of the flowers just spoke to me.  A siren song for holidays far in the future, if you will.

The necklace is made from size 8º hex seed beads with iridescent lucite flowers and tan picasso-finished drops.  The toggle clasp is size 11º seed beads with emerald crystals.

The hex beads are sliver-lined emerald; a very true, solid green.  I like the way the flowers lend a textural fringe to the edges.  Something a little different.

Overall, the piece is quite lightweight.  It has a nice feel, supple and strong.
