Create a necklace with a delicate scallop design

Anne Nikolai Kloss

Although I usually favor ethnic pieces made with heavier stones, the light and airy shape of this necklace intrigued me. I discovered the scallop technique accidentally. I wanted the design to emerge from a center focal bead in the necklace, but the wire kept arching. The shape was attractive, so I added dangles on each side. After establishing the design, I made several versions of this necklace, using crystal discs, hearts, and flowers for accent beads. I look for beads that will hang gracefully and are not too heavy. I also recommend that you store the necklace flat, so that it maintains its shape and doesn't kink.
