Freyja Necklace by manson-brown Freyja Necklace by manson-brown
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.

I would be really interested in seeing pictures of your _amazing_ jewlery on people, I am visualise it in my mind (hehehe ok well with this piece I can visualise it one me :P) but I think it would add a little as well as showing the close up picture like this...

This is absolutely gorgeous! I like it a lot (maybe part of the reason being that one of my nicknames is Freyja...though my name being Jessika is doesn't make much sense...which is to say it makes every bit as much sense as any of my other nicknames, lol) Anywho, much love for this piece...a :+fav: methinks, and after so much staring at your work today methinks you get a :+devwatch: :D

Ahh, so this be the prized piece that is going to be famous :D Tis most lovely indeed :)

If I had the money I'd buy this for my mom as a gift (if she'd accept such a fine gift as this).

I wonder though, do you sell your custom made jewelleries?

Thank you, thank you!

Yeah, I kind of wish there was a more... intuitive? place to put jewelry. I've found jewelry under at least 7 different catagories, heh. So many people think it belongs so many different places, I still kind of keep waiting for somebody to come out of nowhere and yell at me. So far so good, though. ;)

And welcome to DA. :wave:
