This is a necklace strung on silk thread and chain. The zebra wood beads are side drilled with silk knots beside them. This is the same technique used on pearls. The silk thread is strong and lets the necklace lay and move nicely.
Necklace with Earrings – This necklace is 29.5 inches in diameter. The lobster claw is nickel free. The earrings are made with nickel free iron head pins and ear wires and are 1.5 inches long from the ear wire.
Most metal spacers, bead caps and charms are also nickel free. Beads on my jewelry are made from a variety of material, stone, glass, Chinese crystals, cracked glass, agates, glass pearls, seed beads, metal, wood, polymer clay, acrylic or any beading material I think looks interesting.
