Or at least a high-ranking lady.

So, only two pics today, but they're a little larger than usual, because I wanted you to get all the glorious shine and shimmer of these collars. :D

Simple Elegence


The first one, a simple collar with jeweled spacers and a pearl drop. All pearls are glass, the crystals are cheaper versions of Swarovski bicones. Inspired by Renaissance jewelry, with it's simple elegance.

Chained Fae


Second, a little more ornate. Again, all pearls are glass, but this time the bicones are 4mm Swarovskis. An attempt to make a more "Fae" version of the previous collar.

+EDITED TO ADD+

In the name of consolidation, I decided to delete the other thread this is hosted on and move it over here. I think this is my most ornate collar yet.

Decided to name this one Snow Drop, because it reminds me of snowballs and icicles.


4mm silver plated brass beads
6mm Czech pressed glass beads
3mm blue Swarovski crystals
Silver colored brass chain and findings

Wow wow wow! I love them both very much!! They are classic and elegant and beautiful. Cheesy I wouldn't know what to wear them with, but I'm sure they would dress up any outfit. Great work!

Thanks everyone! Your compliments are really encouraging!

Wow wow wow! I love them both very much!! They are classic and elegant and beautiful. Cheesy I wouldn't know what to wear them with, but I'm sure they would dress up any outfit. Great work!

Hehehe. Cheesy It's really hard to find an excuse to wear them out in public, believe me.

I really Really love the second one so much, Love the colour of the green.

Isn't it just the prettiest? "Emerald" by Swarovski, which I love, cuz I'm a May baby. Cheesy

Oh my gosh, that second one is soooo gorgeous XD and it's a perfect match for my (yet-inexistent XD) prom dress Shocked I'm amused, cause it looks pretty much like the neckpieces I drew with my sketch of the dress!
Very pretty. Cheesy Same for the first ^^ I love the look of the jeweled spacers Smiley

If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy

They are both So gorgeous!!!

the first one -with a different color- would make SUCH gorgeous wedding jewelry.  or more accurately, they both would make gorgeous wedding jewelry just as they are, but the first one with a different color would be perfect for MY upcoming wedding!!  lol

beautiful work and seriously, let me know if you have a shop or sell your jewelry!!  Grin
