Description: The focal of this piece, the circle, is a universal symbol representing perfection, unity, and eternal love.
The circle pendant is sumptuously encrusted with Swarovski Crystals and Pearls, allowing you to dress it up or down depending on your mood. The rope introduces a new type of fringe technique called “pinecone fringe” that shapes a beautiful ruffled texture around the rope. Vintage Czech Charlotte beads flank both sides of the focal and add subtle movement and texture to the piece.
Please note that this piece is almost exclusively made with size 15º beads. Also, the finishes of the beads are reflective which when added to their size, makes this project a little more challenging. Larger beads can not be substituted.
