Swarovski Crystal Cascade Necklace

Leave a comment

This piece of wearable art is completely One of a Kind (OOAK). It was designed and handmade by myself. It took several months to make of evenings and weekends.

Beautiful Swarovski Electra crystal and bead embroidered cascade necklace. Made with stunning Swarovski Electra rivoli/chantons in sizes 12, 14, 16, 18 and 27mm. 35 crystals are bezzled in Peyote stitch with size 11 & 15 gold coloured seed beads to enhance the amazing colours of these rivoli/chantons.

Which ever angle you look at this necklace from you will see many colours from including magenta pinks, vivid blues, shades of olive and lime greens through to yellows and gold. The depth of the colours is mesmerizing!

The rivoli/chantons are linked to each other by various sizes of Colorado Gold Swarovski Bicone crystals. The 5 lower points of the necklace has stunning Swarovski Electra crystal drops of extra interest and shimmer.

The neck ‘strap’ is made from various sizes of Swarovski Bicone crystals in Colorado Gold, Electra and black gold and is stitched in Right Angled Weave (RAW) with gold coloured seed beads lacing through them.

The box clasp is attached to an 18mm rivoli to hide the clasp

From the top of the central rivoli to the longest bottom crystal drop point is 22.5cms (9 inches). The widest point of the Rivoli’s is 14cms (5.5 inches). From top rivoli to top rivoli around the neck ‘strap’ is 34cms (13.5 inches).

All the Swarovski Rivoli/chantons and crystals were purchased in the USA as they are not available in the UK. (Well I couldn’t find any!!).
