This necklace is a pleasing mix of shell dagger, rounded
fire polished Czech glass drops, 8mm amber Swarovski crystals, and
assorted Czech fire polished spacers is brought to a smashing finish by
a lovely enameled copper toggle closure by Duluth artist Sarah Lukkonen
of C-Koop beads. (http://www.ckoopbeads.com/index.html)
This necklace is 18' long.
order to preserve the integrity of my jewelry I always line the bead
holes (and in some cases whole beads) with size 15 seed beads. This, in
addition to using wire guardians at the clasp, insures that the
stringing medium is not in contact with the materials and goes a long
way to insure a stable piece that should last many years given proper
care. I use .018 49 strand C-Flex coated stringing wire for this and
all pieces. This work is for sale and listed in my finished jewelry shop on ETSY
