Hand Beaded Necklace with Vintage Emerald Crystal
This green emerald crystal necklace starts with a vintage emerald glass crystal stone, one of many crystals I procured from a vintage shop. I combined it with a woven seed bead necklace of metallic color seed beads that includes a hand-beaded clasp (not metal) and I finished it with a spray of amber and emerald-colored premium crystals. This elegant beadwork emerald collar is 18.75". This stitch is very labor intensive but I love it because it results in such beautiful pieces. This is a one of a kind piece. The stone is dated from the 1900's and is part of a treasure trove of beautiful stones I have in my collection.
