"Linnae" means "small blue flower".  This was my entry for the Battle of the Beadsmith '14 beaded wearable art competition.  As you can see from the first two photos, this piece looks spectacular with blue jeans or dressed up to go to the opera.

The central focus is a set of sea sediment jasper cabochons. I beaded around these with a variety of glass seed beads, vintage cup chain, and crystals. Embellishing the design are vintage glass navettes and cabochons. The clasp is a gold-filled hook and has a detachable drop for drama as you leave a room. The underside of the necklace is finished with seafoam green Ultrasuede for softness and comfort.

Length: 8" from the base of the throat to the bottom of the pendant

Time to complete: 85 hours of solid beading

This piece will be shipped via US postal service, Priority Mail, Insured, and with tracking info.
