I am found of the Victorian age and I find an excellent challenge to design this “lace” necklace. I beaded a lace base and I embellished it with silk ribbon. The pendant is beaded encasing a shell coin, embellished with blue crystals, The pendant has two sides and can be worn both sides. One is more embellished with crystals, the other has an star beaded ornament. The necklace is a choker style, to be worn aground the neck. The ribbon lace make it adjustable.
8 working hours.
Materials used: shell coin, blue- silver plated crystals, Miyuki seed beads, silk ribbon.

I designed this pendant using different techniques of working the wire: coiling, shaping, weaving, wrapping and decorating with metal elements.
I made it in a harp shape embellished with beads reminding of the music sounds at each movement of the body. The pendant is light and its dimensions are 11×14 cm. The chain is included. I used only copper material for this pendant.

I created a free form needle work with beads,
In a stumpwork embroidery style I decorated the beadwork work with coiled wire making accents and interesting points.
I tatted with dark red wool the edges to approach the crewel style of the embroidery.
The laces are tatted to making the necklace adjustable. It remembers me of carnival of Venice

I made a lace beading design for the May Etsy Bearweaver’s challange. The theme was “nautical” so i thought of sea and weaves and…Venus, the goddess. I made a masterpiece from a shell laced in different beads – sea colors – the shell from where the goddess is going to appear. The weaves of the sea are in a degrade range of blues. The foam around the shell is white and then deep in the sea the colors go from turquoise to light green to dark green and dark blue.
The lace is done around white beads of coral.
