This necklace was a commission with the idea that it should be green ;) Better to say it was a birthday present for one in our research group. Since green is one of my favorite colours especially in creating beads as well as jewellery I had quite a collection to select beads from.
You'll find some of my own handmade beads, made from ceramic clay as well as polymer clay.
But also a lot of art beads from others. Among them one of my favorite glass bead artist Kimberly Rogers from numinosity beads.
As well as beads from Julia Hay, Sue Reynolds, Michelle Susanne, Samantha Capeling (I etched the beads, hope you don't mind!) and Karen Totten.
There are also new and vintage czech glass beads, some natural materials like petrified wood and even a tiny roman glass beads that is between 1000 and 2000 years old.
It comes together with knotted waxed linen. As different as all the beads are, they come together through the colour scheme as well as the gradient size shape. I love how it turned out. Every bead has its own story,
Simple without being simple :)
