I made this necklace for the first challenge from 2012 on Etsy Beadweavers’s.
The February theme is “Nest” so i created a ” Tree of life” by encased angelite beads and strips of seed beads woven in herringbone technique.
I assembled the strips as branches and inserted some small angelite beads as knots in the trunk. In between the branches I “plated” the nests. 9 angelite beads encased in seed beads.
The laces and the toggle are made in the same manner. The toggle has a decoration as a small nest “hanging” in the back.
The necklace cover the chest and is nice to be worn directly against the skin or over a uni color pullover or shirt.
