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

-Light rose pearls round and pear-shaped

-Rondelled

-Goldfilled round beads

-Goldfilled wire

-Sterling Silver Wire (mostly deadsoft)
