The 2012 British Bead Awards
Inspired by the decorated and beautifully embellished jewelry of Indian royalty, Maharani is a necklace done in the style of soutache jewelry.
The central pendant is embroidered with tiny gold plated and high quality glass beads around a central glittering crystal. Suspending the pendant are tiny crystals in 3 rows, ending in embroidered crystal components. The double clasps flows from these elements to cleverly become part of the design camouflaging the clasps.
Luxurious grosgrain ribbon forms the back portion of the necklace. Another embroidered crystal component sits atop a simple bow at the back of the necklace as a counter-balance to the front pendant.
Luxurious, decorated, glamorous and royal - a necklace befitting a beautiful Maharani.
