This necklace was featured in the Sept. 2004 issue of BeadStyle magazine.
This 'beadmail' necklace is based off of Japanese 6-in-1 hexmail. So why the Norse name? Beats me.
(Do you hear that? That's the sound of many samurai turning over in their graves.)
It's made with a subtle palette of freshwater pearls in varying shades of mauve, peach, white, silver and blue. (That's poetry for 'I had a ton of pearls that I didn't know what to do with, and was determined to use them up if it killed me.') The pendant is Czech crystal taken from an antique (ca. 1920) chandelier. Wired with sterling silver. Closes with lobster claw clasp.
