California Dream Beadwork and Spinel Necklace
Tiny Japanese seed beads are loom woven into two panels, each 2.5" x 1" and linked with 2mm faceted black spinels, forming a focal element that measures 2.125"W x 2.5"L. The motif is an abstract California Poppy pattern, in rich autumnal shades of gold, teal, red, and blue. The spinels are precision faceted using the same tools used to cut diamonds. Their sparkle is difficult to capture in a photograph. The chain is oxidized sterling silver with a hand-fabricated hook closure, and neck surround is 16.25". Please specify a longer or shorter neck surround at time of order if desired.
