Apollonia: Architecture meets fine jewelry Thursday, March 18th, 10-4 PST
Thursday, March 18th, 2021 - 10-4 Pacific Standard Time
Apolloniais inspired by Bvlgari’s masterful use of Roman architecture as a muse. In this case, I am using the imagery of the Italian baroque ceiling from The Palazzo dei Penitenzieri in Rome.
This set consists of a pair of earrings and a necklace. The main components are cubic right-angle weave (CRAW) and peyote stitch bezeled pear CZs using seed beads and fire polish beads. Three 6mm CZs are bezeled and attached to the bottom of the pear bezels for interest. For the earrings, an embellished pearl cabochon component hides the earring post and clutch. Dramatic to say the least! The necklace has the same center component attached to a light and airy right-angle weave (RAW) variation chain, ending in two beaded pearl buttons and connector.
Skill level: Intermediate to advanced. Students must be comfortable with CRAW, RAW and peyote stitch.
