A silken long crochet chain captures 34" of mixed colorful quartz and agate beads for a mixed gemstone and silk treasure to wear long or layered, clustered on your wrist or mixed with other chains. Channel your inner Hippie and indulge in carefree multistrand colorful fashion.
Made to order, so please choose a medium gray heavy silk yarn or a pale gray, each is hand dyed by a fiber artisan, and each is used to capture a random mix of bright and colorful stones as used in my "Tapestry Series" shown here https://www.etsy.com/shop/WillOaksStudio?section_id=12313922 The fiber and stone construction is so soft, light as a feather, and drapes like a dream. The silk chain is hand washable with mild soap and will give years of wear. In fact, this particular silk yarn becomes glossier and more supple with wear and a few washings! Comes to you wrapped in tissue nestled into a velvet bag which is perfect for storage. Includes silver plated brass findings-bead tips, clasp and ring.
If you wish to also wear your chain as a wrap cuff, please include your wrist measurement in "notes to seller" at check out so that I can tweak the final length for a good fit for you. Listed as 34" here will fit a wrist 6.5" wrapped 5 times.
Coordinated hoop earrings can be added here http://www.etsy.com/shop/WillOaksStudio?section_id=12313922 and if you'd like a different color for the silk fiber base, please drop me a note and I'll try to match my fiber collection with your requests!
I love gemstone beads and am always on the hunt for them. A year ago, I stepped back and realized what a wonderful collection I had gathered with so many shades and colors, in quartz, agates, jaspers and many other varieties, all between 3 and 4 mm in size. I began to experiment with ways to use mixtures of these, that I mix myself, in a series of pieces that I've named the "Tapestry Series." Crocheting chains and cuffs with this mix of stones is the latest addition to this exploration. But please also view my 3 year running "Made with Silk" series here https://www.etsy.com/shop/WillOaksStudio?section_id=6808594 for all kinds of other mixtures of treasures captured with crocheted silk fibers for versatile wearable art pieces.
Each necklace has a slightly different mix so will be unique but all will have a similar feeling to the one in the photograph. Your piece is made to order so if you choose to order more than one part of this set together, I will take care to coordinate the stone mixtures.
See the last image for possible effects if chains from my studio are worn together in layers.
