Intricately woven and colorful invoking thoughts of sultry nights on the subcontinent. At least that is what I was going for when I stitched these.
This piece is bright and and bold in its color scheme. I begin with the top diamond shape using an unusually shaded seed bead in purples, pinks and blues. The center bead is the smallest pearl made by Swarovski. The love how the turquoise holds its own and adds drama to the piece. Then I start on the bottom 3/4 circle with a mix of shiny and matte purple/pink beads. I attach it to the diamond and reinforce it all around.
VERY light weight for the size, after all is mostly glass and thread. 2.5 is inches from the top of the hook to the bottom and 1.5 across at the widest point. Antique brass ear wires finish the look.
