I love these gorgeous gemstones and think they look particularly good mixed with sterling silver.
I have hand knotted the necklace in the traditional way and covered the knots with 3mm silver balls.
The heart measures 2.5cm or 1" in length and has been hand drawn and sawn from sterling silver sheet. I hammered the heart to create multiple surfaces which give a gloriously loved look and catch the light when you wear the necklace.
I struggle sometimes to do up traditional hooks having long hair which gets in the way, so I have used a magnetic sterling silver clasp which is so easy to use.
The necklace measures 52cm.
A really gorgeous piece of original jewellery combining traditional techniques with modern design.
