Lotus Necklace

Update: Instructions for this necklace are available here.

My last project as one of Beadwork magazine's 2012 Designers of the Year.

This Lotus necklace, which features a pendant which can also be worn as a brooch, a hidden clasp and a beaded chain is possibly my favourite ever project. From the second I began this I fell in love with it.

Beaded using peyote stitch with cylinder and seed beads with a dramatic centrepiece this incorporates lots of geometric beadwork.

Based on a lot of the techniques I have developed as part of my Geometric Beadwork Series.
