Rossetti Necklace

This necklace was inspired by our monthly challenge, I tried to capture those soft glowing colors.  I wanted to create a necklace that looks like it would have been worn during that time period with a filigree wrapped pendant, stones, Czech glass and a very generous opera length chain. 
42mm clover petal brass filigree
2 8mm faceted Czech glass rondelle
14 5mm Czech glass drops
2 12mm faceted lepidolite square beads
2 10mm faceted orange aventurine barrel beads
2 6mm fired agate beads
14 7.25mm brass jump rings
2 5mm brass jump rings
1 15mm jump ring
6 2″ brass eye pins
20 1/2″ brass cable chain

1. Place the polymer clay bead in the center of the filigree and fold the four corners around the bead.
2. Attach the large jump ring through the openings of the filigree.

3. Create looped links with each of the beads, string one on an eyepin and create a loop.  Except the drop beads, add 7 drops beads to the eyepins and then make the loop.

4. Attach the glass rondelles links to the large jump ring with the 7.5mm jump rings.

5. Attach the remaining links with the 7.5mm jump rings in the following order: drops, square bead, rondelle, barrel, fired agate.  Add a 7.5mm jump ring to the last beads.

6. Attach the chain to the last jump rings with the 5mm jump rings.

Stones: Rings & Things.  Brass: Vintaj.  Glass drops: Ornementea. Glass Rondelles: Raven’s Journey. Lily Bead: Humblebeads.

    A charming necklace; the
    atmosphere and lovely pastel colours of the painting exactly.

    So perfect! Absolutely gorgeous! You captured even the mood of the painting. The lanterns looked more orange to me too, love it with the pinks and the slatey lavender blue. Bravo!

    It's really beautiful, I really like the way the polymer clay bead is "trapped" in the filigree, congratulations!
