Dagger Flower Pendant & necklace

Continuing on from the green Dagger necklace (below) I wanted to try my hand at making a flower and here is the result. A centre of Swarovski Olivine crystals then surrounded in 4mm Czech firepolished round beads with the dagger shaped beads around the outside.

I have then woven a 3mm black Czech fire polished crystal necklace off the back of the flower in R.A.W. and embellished the band in 15/0s and 11/0s. Check out the clasp, loop and dangle. Very cute!  The overall look of this piece is a flower hanging from a black lace band. I am really happy with this design. I have no doubt more will follow.

The Green Dagger Necklace

Here is my latest necklace design - Green Dagger.
I thoroughly enjoyed using these dagger shaped Czech beads to create something I definitely see as a bespoke piece.

I took my time coming up with a clasp I liked and ended up using 3mm Swarovski crystals and delicas. I reckon it looks like something from a beading book. OMG !
