The beads for this statement necklace were inspired by African trade beads I have owned for many years. The colours are very vibrant and I wanted to recreate a similar feeling in this statement piece. I chose a colourful palette for the base beads and decorated them with layers of dots applied one on top of the other. The beads have all been etched to create a matte appearance.
The necklace consists of 73 handmade glass beads varying in size from 22x11mm to 11x7mm and is 46cm long including the clasp.
The necklace is strung on steel wire bound with waxed Irish linen and secured with one of my handmade sterling silver clasps.
