This tiered necklace is a collection of different strands.
It began with two unfinished Fernando DaSilva braids.
Fernando DaSilva is our Product Development & Creative Manager. He makes so many samples! I could just follow him around picking up leftovers. These two pieces he whipped up and didn’t have time to finish, so I swooped them up!
The green and black beaded braid was too small for a necklace and too big for a bracelet, so I decided to incorporate it into a tiered necklace. I made one extra 8-strand kumihimo braid to pull my idea together. The Dazzle-it rattail colour selection is so great! I can usually match any colour palette.
My braid simply frames Fernando’s beautifully beaded sample.
I then added the gold chain to complete the project. Wait till you see what I am making with the second sample! I’ll post it next week!
