This is a serious piece of eye candy from Fernando DaSilva!
Everything I love is in this necklace. We have a kumihimo braid and fiber embellishments created with Dazzle-it rattail, new end caps, a Metal Complex Instant Glam Bezel, Dazzle-it semi-precious peace symbol beads and best of all; Astra Pink Swarovski Elements floating on a bed of clear resin.
Let’s take a closer look.
The Instant Glam “Quattro” silver bezel is showcasing a collection of Astral Pink Swarovski crystals. They are suspended in place because Fernando placed them on a layer of Jewelry Resin.
The pink and yellow rattail looks fabulous in both the braid and knotted elements. You can see how Fernando is using some of the Chinese knots from his book to create new embellishments.
The peace beads are semi precious and were launched by Dazzle-it this spring.
Metal Complex Instant Glam “Quattro” bezel.
Crystal Astral Pink Bicones
Crystal Astral Pink Wild Heart
Crystal Astral Pink Twist Bead
New End Caps are beautifully featured in this closure. Fernando always makes his necklaces look gorgeous even in areas that may not be seen.
The hand crafted Metal Complex Bezels are perhaps my favorite items to work with. Since I really love working with Jewelry Resin, having having beautiful bezels is a must! The “Lipped Bezels” always look expensive and well made. You also have the option to decorate the edge with additional beading or wire wrapping techniques.
I made a unique and asymmetrical necklace to showcase this bezel. I used:
Bronze Leaf Toggle
Swarovski Briolettes and
Aqua Black Dazzle-it Checker Beads
This necklace is from our photo archives. The simplicity of the suede cord makes the washer pendant really stand out.
The washer was marked with our circle stamps. A little gilders paste added some colour and depth.
The cord is available in spools.
The Metal complex blanks collection includes washers in numerous sizes.
You take one SWAROVSKI Crystal Rock Diamond Bermuda Blue Crystal applique.
Add one Instant Glam Diamond Bezel.
Note that the bezel is ready to attach.
Add your favorite beads and wear!
