Ultra Blue Swarovski Triangle Necklace

I've been making so much big jewellery recently that I fancied a bit of a change so I decided to make a pendant inspired by Jean Power's Heroine Necklace.  

This is what I've made.


I bought a 14mm Swarovski Ultra Blue rivoli and used Jean's method of bezelling (not sure I'll ever go back to doing it the old way to be honest!) and then had to figure out the maths to make the triangle even and integral to the bezel.  Lots of trial and error as maths really isn't my strong suit!I used silver duracoat delicas and silver duracoat seed beads in size 15.

The triangle didn't look great until I zipped the edges together and then it became a very solid and firm triangle.  In this shot you can see how I was inspired by the clasp of the Heroine necklace, although this one is solid, rather than being a tremendously clever three way clasp!

I left the back of the rivoli open so that light can travel through it and make it shine.  Also, I quite like the back being blue, rather than the usual silver or gold foil!

I added a very small and simple square stitched bezel and sewed it closed with the sterling silver chain in situ so that it was tight around the chain, not so tight that the chain won't move, but tight enough that it won't slide off the end when putting it on and taking it off.

I hope you like this simple necklace.  It is Available in my etsy shop here.

  2. Hi admin,

    I read your blog, Its really awesome, I have also a blog which is related with you, which is about anxiety depression disorder.
    The term "anxiety disorders" covers a spectrum of illnesses which all have one thing in common: they are uncontrollable, persistent, and irrational.
    These anxiety disorders are often linked with depression.
