Purple and Turquoise Silk Necklace

Purple and Turquoise Silk Necklace


This silk necklace is purple and turquoise. The beads are compressed cotton and they are spaced with clear bugle beads. It has a silver plated magnetic clasp. I painted the silk in purple and turquoise stripes. It is then steamed to fix the dye. The necklace can be dabbed but not immersed in water. It is very light so ideal for travelling. Length approximately 63 centimetres or 25 inches.
