Holiday Showcase: 12/15/12 Luna-Black Crocheted Necklace with Frosted Crackled Quartz and Black Crystals

  Today I want to show you all a piece that I made a while ago. It's a crocheted necklace made of black cotton, accented with sparkly faceted black czech crystals, and it features something quite unique as a center piece. I call this necklace LUNA.

So why LUNA?
Well, first let me start with that center bead that I simply adore! What is it? Natural semi-precious stone-clear crackled quartz that has been given a frosted matte finish. I remember when I first stumbled upon this, while shopping for material, and I knew from the start that I had to use these in my jewelry!

This picture was taken in direct sunlight. Its a little hard to see the amazing texture and features that that the center bead has. I apologize for this, the sun in combination with the reflective qualities of the quartz makes it hard to see the fine detail.

But look how lovely those black facted crystals sparkle! I guess it was when I took this pictures that I decided to call this necklace LUNA. The center reminds me of the full moon, and the sparkly beads--the stars!

I would put this in the Bib necklace category. This is the only one that I have made. Probably won't ever do a repeat. For one, it's a bit hard to replicate the crocheted pattern that I came up with. Even if I tried, it still would turn out a little different.

As for more details on the crocheted pattern, the band of the necklace is made of rows of circles that intertwine. For a better description, it's quite similar to a chain-link pattern.
Also has a black enamel toggle clasp for closure.

I am currently putting this piece up for sale on Etsy.
