Ice Princess Necklace
Created by Dianne Zack
This opulent Florentine Series is reminiscent of the Old World esthetic, finely detailed and lush with tones of gold. The handmade glass beads, some of which are hollow, are all made with a transparent pale aqua glass, with a variety of textures. They are accented with chunks of icy-looking quartz. The beads are strung using a 49 strand braided and coated metal wire for strength. Findings and metal beads are high-quality vermeil, which is 23k gold over fine silver. Each piece is individually handmade, and while the sequence of glass beads and style of vermeil beads will vary slightly from the image you see, the essence of the design will be consistent.
