The Beaded Cluster Necklace

I was at a renaissance faire in April of year 2002, when I sold a pair of beaded cluster earrings to a very nice woman dressed in noble's garb. Later that day, the same lady came back and asked me if I could design a necklace to match them. This necklace was the result. She loved it, and I think you will too.

Very Fine Byzantine Necklace

Now and again I hear from people who say they like my jewelry, but feel that many of the pieces I make are too large for them to be comfortable wearing. This necklace solves that problem. The chain is only 2.7mm wide, and an 18" necklace weighs only half an ounce in sterling silver.

Rope Necklaces w/ Clasp

This is the most basic of the chainmaile necklace designs. The necklace is a single strand of any of the weaves on the ropes page. These necklaces can be of any length, and there are numerous weave, width, and metal options. To order one of these chains just use the forms in the ropes section.

This design is a minor variation on the above necklaces. In these necklaces the weave continues around into a full circle and connects back onto itself (no clasp!). These can also be ordered via the forms in the ropes section, or via the orderform found here.

The Wave Choker

This is a simple yet elegant choker made with a weave called The Wave. As you can see, varied ring sizes cause the piece to curve in and out along both the top and the bottom. The choker is about 3/8" wide and by nature of its construction it can be clasped anywhere along its length, allowing for a perfect fit.

Beaded Butterfly Chain Choker

One of my favorite weaves to add beads to is the Butterfly Chain. The choker is made from a chain of seven ring 'butterflies', with a bead suspended in the air between each pair. It is approximately 3/4" wide. Please note that this should be worn as a reasonably tight choker because the chain needs to retain some tension for the butterflies to hold their shape well.
