Black and White Classic Bead Embroidery

What's Black and White and Worn All Over... this bead embroidered necklace!

Well it will be worn all over by whomever says they've gotta have it!  I just listed this piece in my Etsy Shop.  After making my sister's wedding veil, I felt like I was staring into a blizzard... which was a bit too much white on white for my eyes.  But since I had all my white seed beads already out... I thought I might as well use them rather than just put the beads away.

I know (insert brilliant Ah Ha! here) I'll use black and white to make something totally dramatic in design.

Available in my Online Store and my Etsy Shop!
And away I did bead.  This necklace worked up beautifully.  The contrast was very striking and the way that each element added a new texture or shape really helped make the pendant something special.

Sometimes found objects make the most interesting impact on the pendant.  See the seashell in the lower right side of the pendant.  We used those as bingo markers for Bridal Bingo at my sisters shower a few weekends back.  It transformed from "Free Space" to "HOLY Cow, I want that in my space!" :o)

I also love the way the glass cabochon is bezeled.  Once I finished the bezel, I pulled out my little 3mm Swarovski Sequins (also known as Lochrosen or #5128 from and used them to embellish the gunmetal delicas.  SO if I were a professional photographer (which I'm not) you would totally see how sparkly this pendant is.  For those that have worked with the Swarovski sequins... I know you're drooling right now!

Classic & Elegant, I'm sure this piece will strike a chord with many.  But only one lucky person can own this beauty... it's a One-of-a-Kind Designs by Dawn Marie original!

Hope you have a fantastic day!
