Beaded Honey Onyx necklace with fringe and Swarovski Crystal Accents.
Fabric that inspired the beaded honey onyx necklace.

As I mentioned before, my younger sister Theresa is a very talented seamstress, and has made clothing for her family members for years.  I was especially enthralled with some of the ethnic fabrics she was using when making 'dashikis', scarves, skirts, vests, and traditional African tam hats and caps.  The colors and patterns were very bright and vivid and I was inspired!! I also LOVE the challenge of making a matching or coordinated pattern.

This particular fabric is splashed with multiple colors, a little gold design, 2 small masks and 1 large black/gold mask pattern (s). 

The 'Honey Onyx Necklace' has a 30mm x 40mm genuine honey onyx semi-precious gem stone cabochon as it's centerpiece.  I've bezeled it with size 11/0 22k gold Delica beads and 3mm genuine cut crystal barrel beads. The rest of the beadwork surrounding it are a random colored mixture of size 14/0 round glass Japanese beads.  The fringe accents include 14k gold liquid gold tubes, 3mm genuine cut crystal barrel beads, and gold genuine Swarovski Austrian crystals.  Backed with genuine pigskin leather and hung from 14k gold bails and 26" gold plated chain.
