Some pendants deserve more than a simple metal chain or cord. I love the look of crocheted spirals, and the Chenille-stitched necklace that a friend gifted to me is one of the most delicate, romantic pieces that I have. However, there’s a serious bottleneck for me: I simply don’t have the time and patience to create these kinds of necklaces, as they are extremely work-intense.
While playing with my Art Deco Beadingschool Academy Theme Box a ‘what if’ question came to my mind: what if I used the bigger pearls for the cord and just decorated them all around with seed beads to soften the look and make the more delicate-looking, instead of beading the whole piece from teeny-tiny seed beads? The result of that question and some playtime while travelling is the Art Deco Pearl Chain. It’s fast, it’s super elegant, and it can be adjusted to any size of pearls that you like, or even the combination of them.
