Caribbean Sunset - Pendant and Spiral Rope Necklace

This is a OOAK necklace created with a glass cabochon that has many layers of seed bead embroidery surrounding it. The necklace portion is a spiral rope in warm, rich colors. The color beads used are – hot pink, orange, violet, turquoise. The theme for this months EBW Team challenge is Tropical Holiday. I had purchased this glass cabochon a while ago and was just waiting for the right time to use it. When I looked at it in the vertical position it reminded me of a warm tropical beach at sunset. I have named this necklace Caribbean Sunset.

The necklace measures 18 inches in length and has a gold loop and toggle closure. The focal measures 3 inches in length and 2 inches in width.

This necklace was created for the Etsy Beadweavers February 2009 challenge Tropical Holiday. You can check out other entries by searching "ebwc" here and vote for your favorite between February 9 thru February 15 by visiting the Beadweavers Blog
