I wasn't sure how I was going to work up one of their pieces and sat and looked at it for some time. In conjunction with their cabochon, I incorporated a beautiful Vintage mottled blue cabochon and surrounded it with sapphire blue Swarovski rivolis. Woven and embroidered with a wide variety of Czech glass and seed beads and Japanese seed beads and a smattering of Swarovski bicones. The pendant is embroidered on brown microsuede and backed with the same. It measures 5 1/4" in width and 6" in length.
The neck part is embroidered on beautiful supple navy blue leather and backed with brown microsuede with a slide clasp in a pewter finish. The width measures 1 1/4". The square blue 'cabochons' are Antique, I believe, at the very least Vintage, faceted cobalt blue 2 hole beads. This piece is sized for a specific size neck, otherwise it won't sit properly. The perfect neck size is 16"-16 1/4".
