I am fortunate beyond words to have a studio that is stocked with a multitude of different fibers and supplies so that when I am not quilting or designing wearable art, the supplies are readily available to create other art related items. Years ago my grandmother made a necklace similar to this and I always wanted to create a similar piece of neckwear in honor of a lingering, gentle remembrance.
This 17" necklace was crocheted with black, cotton, crochet thread and is studded with an abundance of white, faux pearls. One end of the necklace has a loop which accommodates a large, transparent, pale blue bead at the other end for a fast and easy, yet secure, closure. It's timeless design makes this neck piece appealing to all ages and would be stunning with either casual or dressy attire.
