Lariat ~ Raspberry Copper

Details

Using a mix of seed beads, to help showcase the colors in the vintage seed beads, I chose warm copper plated chain and accents, with an assortment of raspberry and hematite colored beads to mingle in a fun and flirty lariat necklace. Fresh water pearls, Swarovski crystal, and faceted Czech glass add richness and sparkle. The lariat is about 39 1/2 inches in the middle, with a beaded cluster at each end, for a total length of over 43 inches!

The lariat may be worn long, by simply twisting the ends into half of a knot, or may be worn choker style, as shown in the picture.

Earrings and Bracelet are also available.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Years ago, I met a gentleman selling beads at a show. He specialized in vintage beads, and had bins full of treasures! Many of the beads were covered in dust, strung on brittle threads, with tags aged and yellowed. I made it a point to visit his booth first every year. Then to my disappointment, he stopped doing the shows. However, I remained in touch, and from time to time he finds things that seem to remind him of me, and I'll get a call. One of the recent finds was a hank of vintage seed beads (found in an old warehouse in NY) and I was delighted when he called! When the beads arrived, I was like a kid with a new toy. I still have no idea what color to call them, but in the hank seems to be a mix of root-beer browns, dark golden topaz, and interestingly, a dark cranberry color. But when not held to the light, the over all effect is almost a hematite look. I couldn't wait to make something using these beads!
