Chevron Embroidered Necklace, Beaded Fringe, Turquoise on Moss Green Linen, Gypsy Boho

A chevron pattern in turquoise and muted shades of green a mauve make for an unique statement in this art to wear necklace. I started with pale moss green linen and accented it with a grid of translucent metallic gold fabric paint. I then embroidered the geometric pattern onto the pendant using satin stitch with cotton embroidery thread. The pendant is backed with soft celery ultrasuede and there is a layer of fabric interfacing inside to add stiffness to the pendant.

 

I edged the entire pendant with brick stitch and added translucent aqua dangles on antique brass wire. Wire loops were also embedded into the pendant, and a delicate antique brass finish chain with lobster claw hook was added.

 

Dimensions: The pendants is 3 inches (7.62 cm) wide by 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) tall, and the dangles

hang down another quarter inch (.64 cm). Each length of chain is 8 inches (20.3 cm) long.
