It is 7cm in length and made with all swarovski crystals.

My first Entry in the 2008 Swarovsky competition

This particular design was my first test in wirework 3D structural jewelery. After finishing the framewaork, admitedly I was very very disapointed on how it turned out. I was so ready throwing it into the bin, luckily my wife had a lok at it and said "very nice", I was then so keen to finish it off. It had undergone 1 minor facelift and a change of focal bead from De-art to Baroque pendant.

With the completion of this necklace, I realised that anything (structural that is) is possible with wirework.
I named it : "Meadieval Princess" choker

Materials list:

- 4mm crystal AB bicones

- 4mm Golden shadow bicones

-Golden shadow baroque pendant

-Creamrose pearls round and pear-shaped
