Magical Journey ll.
Remember my first Magical Journey Necklace? You can still view it at 1000Markets. But if you click the picture you will get a little Note next to it, Sold Out.
Well, at a special request I made a second Necklace. The colors may vary a little, since I did not have the exact same beads and maybe my inspiration was a little different. Usually my work is one of a kind and I don't duplicate. But this was an exception.
This enchanting necklace is made from pieces of an old Asian vase broken by accident. I saved the pieces and after a while I tried to carve them in a way that would still show the beautiful hand painted colors. I imagined a magical journey in time and space in ancient Asia.
Every piece (40 mm x 30 mm; 35 mm x 22 mm; 30 mm x 22 mm) was carefully sanded in order to smooth the edges and then the beading process started. I used modified peyote and bead lace to form a beautiful golden bezel around each piece. The size 15 seed beads are from Japanese Miyuki. I completed the necklace with genuine off white large pearls, connected with green jade leaves and beads and glass dark gold beads. A pretty filigree gold filled clasp finishes the 19" necklace. The necklace can be also worn asymmetrically.
It a conversation piece . You can wear it on an evening out, it will get many compliments. It is perfect for giving as a gift.
