Peeper OOAK Necklace

Currently available in my Etsy store, see my profile for the link.

This piece was originally created back in 2009 and it has taken me all this time to complete it. It originally started life as a cuff ... but it was not to be. Introducting 'Peeper'.

 

Peeping from within a carpet of swaying Swarovski crystals is a vintage porcelain doll face. Peeper is surrounded by lots of Swarovski crystals 2mm (Golden Shadow) and 3mm (Jet)beads. The circular frame has been created using polymer clay, the textured surface of the frame has been highlighted with wax metallic paints to give it a lovely soft faux aged patina.

 

The circumference of the pendant has been beadwoven using peyote stitch, Delicas and Toho Treasure glass cylinder beads. The beading gently wraps around to the reverse of the pendant which has been sealed with fawn coloured Ultrasuede.

 

The necklace strap has been created using hard to source, smooth glossy Black Spinel tumbled gemstone beads, small faceted Onyx gemstone beads and facted glass beads. The clasp has been beadwoven and showcases two Swarovski 6mm bicones in Jet.

 

The Peeper Pendant is 6cm across or approx 2inches.. the necklace strap is 25cms or just over 9.5 inches
