So all summer I have been working on Jean Power's amazing Heroine Necklace. The pattern came out in the August/September issue of Beadwork Magazine and as soon as I saw it I fell utterly in love with it and knew I needed to make one for myself!
Here is my attempt:
Here's a close up of the chain:
On the other side of the clasp, I decided to use a titanium coated agate druzy. I wanted something that looked really industrial but organic and thus completely at odds but in harmony with the rigidity of the steel triangles. I think it works!
The colour of the druzy really lightens the steel in comparison with the black glass cab.
In all, this has been a mammoth project, and definitely not a hill I'll be scaling anytime soon again! All the effort, and 100g of steel delicas is definitely worth it though as I think it looks amazing. Jean made such a clever clasp and the fact that you can wear it without the clasp and tie it together with ribbon just adds to the versatility. I love this necklace and thanks to Jean for such an amazing pattern!
