This piece is very much inspired by the bib necklaces I remembered seeing at the Bakhor Market in Lhasa, Tibet about 11 years ago. I didn’t know much about beaded jewellery then but remembered seeing a lot of beautiful Turquoise with Coral beaded neck pieces. Perhaps, that is why I like working with Turquoise and Coral Red combination so much.
Using bead embroidery techniques, the turquoise stones and seed beads were stitched on and a brass plate sandwiched between the two pieces of backings. Two gold chain were added on both ends to complete the necklace.
