Victorian women loved spectacular jewelry. Modern handicraft and dry goods stores have a large selection of glass beads and pomegranate pendants that can be used to create an elegant necklace that would appeal to any high-society girl in Queen Victoria's time. Black and crimson were the favorite colors of the era.
This easy-to-create necklace combines the named colors. With a few basic handicraft skills, you can make a necklace that will look spectacular with a black dress.
To make a Victorian necklace, you will need:
- black thread for beads;
- a needle for beads;
- 50 black polished beads with a diameter of 5 mm;
- 20 black polished beads with a diameter of 8 mm;
- silver pendant with garnet;
- silver clasp;
- white glue;
- a toothpick.
1. Thread the beading needle with a thread that is about 60 cm long.
2. Alternate five small beads with one large one until the resulting necklace is 18 cm long.
3. Now you need to string the suspension.
4. Alternate five small beads again with one large 18 cm bead.
5. Tie the ends of the thread to the silver fastener with double knots and cut off the rest of the thread. Apply a drop of white glue to the ends of the knots to prevent them from coming loose.
