Enchantress - Bead Embroidery Pendant and Spiral Necklace

I finally finished this piece last night. I decided I liked the pendant with the narrow side up. The focal is a hand beaded embroidery pendant in a freeform shape. It consists of hundreds of beads in various sizes, each hand applied one by one. The necklace is a spiral rope in matching colors. A loop and toggle closure finish it off. The colors in this one are purple, lime green, yellow, turquoise, and gold. This necklace is 17 inches in length plus the closure. The focal is 2 3/4 inches in length and 2 inches in width at its widest point. This necklace is in my Etsy Shop here.

The necklace is gorgeous! Of course I love spiral rope so that goes without saying. And your bead embroidered pendant inspires me to try embroidery myself. Beautiful, beautiful piece!
