Handmade Pearl, Onyx, and crystal Choker Necklace designs using Herringbone stitch Technique


Handmade Pearls And Coral Necklace - Choker

This necklace was the inspiration for the following various jewelry designs.  When I learned how to do tubular herringbone stitch I immediately thought of freshwater seed pearls. I think they are a perfect match for this technique and the end result creates a luxurious necklace. 

I tried variations of the above design as mentioned above and still my favorite ones are with the seed pearls.  

Design 1 - Pearls, crystal and coral barrel

I made the pearl clusters using small white cultured freshwater potato pearls, added two red crystals between the pearls and the crystal rondells and used the coral barrel for contrasting accent. The back of the necklace has two clusters of red crystals on each end.

Design 2 - Pearls, crystal and coral disks

Similar to design 1, except I replaced the coral barrel with three coral disks with silver spacers in between them.  The back of the necklace has two clusters of red crystals on each end.

 Design 3 - Pearls and crystal

I made the pearl clusters using burgundy cultured freshwater pearls, added two siam crystals between the pearls and used the cracked crystal quartz for contrasting accent. The back of the necklace has two clusters of clear crystals on each end.

Design 4 - Onyx and crystal 

Here i used small black onyx beads instead of the pearls, added two round clear crystals between the clusters and used the cracked crystal quartz for contrasting accent. I think this black and white combination came out nice.

Similar to design 1, except I replaced the coral barrel with cracked crystal barrel and added two red crystals.  More emphasis on the white than the red color.
