This hand beaded embroidered collar has a focal piece of genuine handmade dichroic glass.
The theme for the piece is a riot of saturated, pigmented colour, and an array of shapes, sizes and textures. The piece includes jade donut, captured (netted) freshwater pearls, green turquoise, handmade polymer clay “fossils’ in metallic, jewel tones, Swarovski crystals, genuine rock crystal, moonstone, and an array of pressed Czech glass beads. The drop section has a gold and jewel toned button, sewn into the collar and surrounded by golden pearls and triangular yellow jade. The final touch is strands of tiny golden beads that showcase exquisitely small Swarovski bicone crystals in a rainbow array of colours.
The clasp is a hook and eye clasp that is attached to another handmade dichroic glass dome, surrounded by jewel toned glass seeds.
The collar is an heirloom piece, all hand crafted, each bead individually stitched onto backing fabric. The entire piece is then backed with ultrasuede, which is a beautifully soft but resilient man-made fabric that does not fray. The clasp, chain and rings are all gold plated brass.
