Mixed Media Statement Necklace - Red, Orange, & Yellow
This mixed media necklace combines fabric, beads, coins, and brass findings for a one-of-a-kind statement choker necklace. From the handmade fabric bead to the Hamsa charm and African glass bead finishing the pendant, it's sure to start conversations wherever you go!
This particular necklace features one of my handmade fabric "obi" beads made from vintage, hand-dyed fabric. The pendant is handmade from wood and embossing powder (melted and stamped for texture and subtle pattern)and then layered with Czech glass beads and semi-precious gemstone chips (including some pyrite sand,) and is toped with a replica Chinese coin and a vintage rhinestone. The other components of the necklace feature African recycled glass, Dogon trade beads (also referred to as Dutch Donuts,) and Indian glass beads. Dangling from the pendant is another bronze Dogon bead mixed with African recycled glass and a floral patterned and lightly gold foiled bead from my stash as well as an antique brass hamsa charm. The "chain" is recycled sari silk with a brass toggle closure.
The sari ribbon "chain" is 16" and the pendant drop is 10."
