Queen of the Nile Necklace
Love the eclectic style and bold symmetrical shaped of Art Deco Jewelry? Love two hole beads? This necklace uses two hole beads, peyote stitch and rich colors to crate the Art Deco look so popular in the 1930's. Inspired by Jakob Bengel, the German Art Deco jewelry designer, you will learn to increase and decrease peyote stitch with segments containing 16 bricks on the diagonal edge, the second segment contains eight bricks on the diagonal and the third segment contains five bricks on the diagonal edge. The necklace has a soft and supple drape and is a delight to wear. A single point of attachment clasp finishes it off.
