This Victorian style necklace I designed as a tribute to one of my favorite characters of Downton Abbey: the dowager countess, Lady Violet.
The centerpiece has a beadwoven bezeled cabochon with fringes and the straps have pearls and firepolished beads in them.
This tutorial explains all the steps with over 50 diagrams and photo's, and written instructions to guide you through completing this lovely necklace.
A materials list is added, as well as two color charts: for the black and purple version and the black and gold version.
It's a wonderful necklace to weave, and a stunner to wear!
