I began this necklace, using my Pineapple Blossom tutorial, as a demonstration piece for the TOHO booth at the Bead & Button show, but it proved to be a less than terrific demo piece. The silver-lined crystal beads can be challenging to see without a darker mat and great light, and I wanted onlookers to be able to see what I was doing.
The results are gorgeous though, and I think this would be a great wedding necklace!
I had a hard time shooting this piece, and here is an image on black, that helps show detail.
My pattern is calibrated for a leather backing on the jewel, and that process is included in the tutorial, as well a in a video here on my blog.
Make some bride happy!
