Black and Green Art Glass Necklace by Mara Mednis
Wearable length is 21 1/2” with the pendant measuring about 2 ½ x 2 ¼”. This piece was inspired by the beautiful art glass made by the son of a vendor I bought stones from. His son didn’t think his glass work was good, but I thought his pieces were lovely. The art glass cabochon has a green, black, and copper seed bead bezel. Backing is black ultrasuede fabric. It is suspended from the necklace by a beaded bale in peyote stitch, using two types of black seed beads. The necklace rope is herringbone made with black seed beads. Over that are two looped strands of seed beads, mostly black, but with a few pops of green and white seeds. Closure is a decorative copper toggle.
