Swag Collar Necklace & Earrings
Inspired by the vintage ornamental draperies that were suspended and fastened in a curve between two points, this collar mimics the grand and elaborate swags of eras gone by. The swags are fastened at each end and embellished with a bezel-set Swarovski crystal Rivoli. This piece is created in chevron chain stitch using various techniques throughout the collar.
The Swarovski Rivolis are housed inside a bezel that utilizes circular chevron chain, herringbone and peyote stitches. The closure is a simple lasso on the last Rivoli. This kit also includes the supplies and instructions necessary to create the matching earrings. This set wears comfortably and is a show stopper.
Skill Level: Prior knowledge of right-angle weave and peyote is necessary for this piece. Although new techniques are covered in the pattern, they are easily learned from clear and concise instructions.
