Punk Rock- Chainmaille necklace with lampwork glass
Some people associate hot pink and black with Punk Rock Chicks... so here's a little tribute to those hard rocking, mohawk wearing ladies! This one of a kind necklace features a hand crafted focal bead, which created by Designs by K. Urato, a fantastic lampwork glass artisan. It is accented with hot pink and black crystals. The necklace is made of anodized aluminum, the clasp is stainless steel.
Each beaded drop was wire wrapped with color coated copper. Each link opened and closed to create the lacy effect of European four in one weave. This is an ancient weave, used in the past to make medieval armour. I chose to use Anodized Aluminum to keep the beautiful colors lightweight and easy to wear. As a result, this necklace is sturdy, but not heavy!
This gorgeous statement piece can be worn up on the collarbone or below it. The necklace length can be modified to suit your needs. The shortest length I can make this piece is about 18 inches, and the longest is about 26 . Keep in mind that this is a ONE OF A KIND creation!
I can do similar designs in other colors, with different beads, but this piece will not be recreated exactly the same EVER.
