Netted Spring Bracelet and Necklace

The Netted Spring Bracelet and Necklace are
made with a technique called potato chip netting. It is a straightforward netting stitch, but uses multiple sizes of beads with no increases or decreases worked in. This make the piece ripple and have ridges. The bracelet has two Thai Lucite buttons as a closure. It is done in Pale green, pink, lavender, and cream, and is 7 1/2" ( with clasp) x 1 3/4".

The pendant is strung on a herringbone stitched matching chain with a magnetic catch, and can be removed so the chain can be worn on its own, or with another pendant. The fringe on the pendant is vintage German, pressed glass, yellow flowers. The colors in both the pendant and the chain are the same as the bracelet. The beaded chain is 20 1/2" with the pendant hanging another 1 1/2" plus a 1 1/2" fringe. It has a silver-toned magnetic clasp.
