Multi strand crochet beaded necklace or cuff of dark charcoal gray silk captures a rainbow of bright Czech glass beads and textured steel disks in an antique silver finish. The dark color silk triple strand creation is a 20" long necklace closing with a sterling silver spring clasp. Can be used as a silk wrap cuff where it is dense and rich as the triple strands wrap the wrist 3 times (3x3=9 strands total and just under 7" around).
So comfortable as the strong, smooth silk is very light with beautiful drape for a necklace that will work with many necklines and will layer with numerous other pieces, including some of the pieces here in my studio. Worn as a cuff, it's so soft and light you will forget you're wearing it.
The Czech glass beads are bright primary rainbow tones with a shiny finish. Tiny metal disks about 1/4" or 6mm in diameter are reminiscent of sequins but are finished with a texture that has been antiqued on one side and is smooth on the other. The disks are punched from steel and are plated with antique silver finish. Because these tiny disks are able to easily rotate within the silk chain, they do not poke when worn but rather, lay smoothly and comfortably.
Heavy charcoal gray silk is made in American and this piece is easily hand washable with mild soap and then hung with a bit of weight to dry. It's also available in a warm rusty brown color fiber with copper accents and metallic glass beads here http://www.etsy.com/listing/81356632/crochet-multistrand-silk-necklace-with
