Several people I've spoken with lately have mentioned that my Lacework bracelets remind them of spider webs, so I thought I'd play with that here.
I worked with three different types of silvered beads: one's opaque metallic reminding me of hematite, another transparent silver lined with sky blue and larger beads that have the sheen of hematite, but are semi-transparent. Also worked with shiny opaque black Czech seed beads, opaque matte black Japanese seed beads and an assortment of Chinese crystals in blacks and silvers. Very international!
The blue lined silver beads reminded me of strands of moonlight, and well you can see where the name came from, from there.
It's designed as a short, collar-length necklace. Wish I had a model with a beautiful neck to photograph it being worn. But here's a clear picture of the full length:
It's a combination of freeform peyote and random right angle weave. And finished, I think it's sort of a cross between Steampunk and Victorian with a touch of Goth. Hadn't been going for the last, but the color scheme almost insured it would seem that way a bit. I imagine it worn with a sleek black dress framed by a low neckline.
What do you think?
