Stitched in beads in shades of sultry gunmetal grey and vibrant metallic purple, this necklace features the glamour and sparkle of Swarovski crystals as embellishment to create a piece which demonstrates the intricacy and delicacy of beadweaving, whilst proving that this traditional jewellery making technique can also be bold and edgy. The design of this necklace consists of three beadwoven floral motifs, with trailing chains of tendrils draping from them, linked together by peyote-stitched crystal adorned rings and a ‘double toggle’ fastening.
