Forget Me Knot Necklace - Golden South Sea Pearl with Citrine
The Forget Me Knot line is my original and classic design that got me into jewelry making. I was taught long ago the simple, somewhat tedious yet meditative technique of hand-knotting each bead into a strand using nylon thread much like knotting a pearl necklace the way grandma had in her jewelry collection. The result shows each facet, each side of the gemstone in beautiful brilliance along with a thread that can either enhance the natural colors of the stones or give contrast to the beads and pendant being used. I nearly abandoned this style due to its laborious technique but have been told to not "forget" about it, so I haven't ...
The pearl on this necklace is a 12mm Indonesian Golden South Sea I picked up during one of my surf trips to Indonesia. The strand consists of citrine and 14k goldfill accent beads knotted in a darker yellow nylon thread.
Necklace length is 18" and adjustable to 20"
