Sometimes, you want something a little edgy, without crying out to the world that you’re unique and different. Like a glowing question mark hovering overhead: is she, or isn’t she. That’s what prompted this necklace.
I saw some micro daggers (actually part of the Crystaletts product line) which got me very intrigued. Teeny tiny button-like daggers. Oh my!
This is the result. The gunmetal color of the daggers and beads plays off nicely against the firepolished crystals. The crystals are a mauve/maroon/grey color mix.
The necklace was stitched using tubular right angle weave (t-raw for the acronym enabled), then embellished with gunmetal size 6 beads and the spikes. The black chain used as an extender was also hand made.
So, will I be making more of these, as is my wont when I discover something new?
No. Absolutely not. This necklace took a half-mass of crystals. That’s 600 beads. Until I’m once again able to visit the Tucson Gem Show, that is waaay to much stash for one necklace.
