This is what I've made for my Gorgeous Choker Swap partner, Clarity.

You can check the swap gallery too.

I enjoyed making the choker. That's because right from the start I had rather good idea of what I wanted to make. I wanted it to be unique, special, gothy and elegant.

So I started here.

Celtic Knot Earrings

These are the first beadwoven earrings I made using my own pattern. I thought that they'd look great as a "spine" of my choker, and they could easily be transformed into bracelet or cuff.

See for yourself if I was right Wink



Made of two sizes of black Czech seed beads, the necklace was supposed to fit Clarity's neck perfectly, falling down to her collarbone.



The cuff should also fit snugly but not to tight so it could cover her wrist and fall below it and over her hand.



Now I only have to think of how to transform the cuff into handflower.

Thank you. I thought these are going to be my favourites too, but it turned out that there were some other chokers I liked better.

These are really cool, I have no idea how you make something so intricate.  My daughter would wear something like the necklace.  Nice job.
