Medici Rosette

Standard

IMG_3886Catherine or Cosimo

Suitable for either, I think.  Jewelry to start a banking empire.

A chance to use some different beads – two hole crescents and two hole lentils.  The crescents are the new “suede” finish, not shiny but not matte either.  Softly glowing.  There are also 8mm crystals, as well as seed beads tucked underneath.  Seed beads are the workhorses of the beading world.

This necklace is made as components, each rosette is stitched, then the whole is strung together.  The rosettes are ever so subtly offset, which provides more visual interest.
