The interlaced "gears" in the needlewoven motif are made with Japanese triangle beads in a rich amethyst and in topaz lined with a charming berry colour.
Each of the beads has been individually stitched into place: a painstaking and time-consuming operation, you may be sure!
The motif is about 4" long.
I've strung it on a 17" strand of matte black seed beads.
The clasp is a dainty gold fill hook set.
Colouration and styling lend a feel of the art moderne to this lovely creation.
It's another innovative design from SPARKLE PLENTY.
