Silver Viking Knit Weave Necklace w Quartz Crystal & Copper Threads Pendant 2011

Quartz Crystal which has Copper Threads running through is quite unique with beautiful clarity.   The ‘rope’ necklace is my Woven Silver Viking Knit Weave using Single Weave method which when drawn through the wooden plate extends longer and thinner than the Double Weave which I use often for Bracelets.  See other posts for Viking Knit Bracelets.

The formation of Quartz Crystal with different minerals within is a magical piece of Nature’s Art.                                                                                   A link for more information on Rutile Quartz Crystal.

My inspiration for the Detachable ‘Back Bead Drop’ Detail comes from the 1920’s, feminine fashion and Art Deco lines.  Design is more interesting when the whole is considered in balance, a focus in the ‘front’  with the ‘back’  treated with casual functionality only is an opportunity lost.  The textural feeling of having beads dangle, swing and sway down my back reminds me of my femininity and a strong  spine ~ pride in my beauty.
