Beetle Necklace, 2020. Hand-woven Japanese seed beads size 11, and four 12 mm lucite beads, 1970.
This necklace is part of a series inspired by symmetries, which started at the end of 2019. I used a bead weaving technique called "cubic right angle weaving", which is very time consuming. It involves creating blocks made of 8 seed beads each, and building dimensional shapes, one block at a time. The necklace comes with a hoop clasp and measures 11 inches from neck to neckline'. This symmetrical costume jewellery is inspired by the beetle.
