HOW I CREATED THIS NECKLACE I CALL STONE LOVE

STONE LOE NECKLACE

I’m a seed bead jewelry designer. I’d been working with this technique called seed bead sculpturing. There are many designs of interlocking circles even ovals in beaded jewelry. This technique had a lesson on creating rectangles, so I was excited to try the rectangle technique. I wanted to include a color change in this design.  The seed beads colors are Milkshake and pallidum silver. Next, I wanted to create an interlocking rectangles Necklace.

I called this Necklace Stone Love because the colors reminded me of marble and the song Stone Love by the Supremes came to my mind.

This is the beginning of creating my design.

 

 

 

Here are 14 beads done. I thought of stopping there and make bracelet. But I soldiered on to create the necklace, that I envisioned.

Here I’m trying out accent beads of grey glass in a long bicone shape. They weren’t it.

Next, I auditioned some long grey glass beads. I found those to be too thin.

Here I tried pairing the rectangles with pearls, but they didn’t feel right either.

Then I found in my stash some rectangle twisted grey glass beads and they were perfect.

I wanted to see what the necklace would look like on a black dress,

Its 20 inches long.

I made earrings and a bracelet to finish the look. I’ll show those to you in the next post.
