Another new necklace experiment. The thread is size 20Lizbeth in Country Turquoise Medium. I used 8mm Swarovski crystal pearls for the centers of the motifs and earrings, and size 4mm Swarovski Crystal bicones for the light colored sparkly beads. Embellished all around with size 11/0 seed beads.
I made separate medallions first, then connected them with tatted rings and chains. The neck cord ended with beaded split rings with beads between.
This necklace measures about 18 inches long. I would have preferred it a bit shorter, but since I started at one end and worked around to the other end, it was hard to estimate how many split rings would be needed. I think next time I'll start somewhere in the middle and make each side separately, then stop when it's long enough.
