Statement Jewellery: a Soutache and Gemstone necklace
Sea Creatures -
Using a traditional material (soutache - a braid used to add decorations to military uniforms) in a totally contemporary way. This necklace incorporates a mixture of genuine gemstones, including Labradorite and Azurite cabochons, hematite and smoky quartz beads alongside Miyuki seed beads, Czech glass and Swarovski crystal elements.
As you move, the Labradorite cabochons and the Czech glass beads will flash with changing colours and the Swarovski crystals will sparkle.
The necklace makes a big statement, but without the usual weight of pieces this size and is comfortable to wear. If you don’t want to be noticed this is not the Necklace for you!
With thanks to Gemma Crow for the design inspiration.
