Necklace 150214

Necklace with Native-American Style Acrylic Beads, Wood Squares and Gold-Plated Seed Beads

This 27-inch necklace was a Valentine’s Day present for Vera. Strung on a single length of braided satin-gold color wire attached to a gold-plated spring-ring clasp, it features “exotic” wood squares and acrylic beads in one of the styles of Native-American painted pottery. Between the larger beads are gold-plated glass seed beads. Not everyone likes acrylic beads, but I think these look sharp without the weight of ceramic beads. I tried a bit of asymmetry in the bead and wood square colors here.

Vera thinks the piece has a masculine aspect. Hmmmm. I did have a bit of trouble keeping my bottom ornament pointing straight down when I was setting up the photo.
