I have always wanted to bead a long necklace without the use of a large pendant. When I started beading Melodie, it was just going to be a long rope with several embellished segments. Somewhere along the way, I found beautiful large pearls and I wanted to use them. I thought of making a lariat but the beads didn’t want to cooperate. I thought of stitching the open ends together and that didn’t look right either. After a couple of days, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Here is the finished necklace. I love that this necklace has a perfect dose of sparkle, gleams with pearls and the seed bead is soft gray. The touch of soft, dusky pink gives it a vintage touch. Vintage-inspired Melodie Necklace emanates regal essence. The lyrical design of beautiful proportions in this long necklace perfectly fuses tradition and modernity. It is perfect for an evening at the opera or a celebration dinner with friends. I will be making 2 more colorways, both in soft colors and loaded with crystals and pearls.
