The Ice Princess awakes and emerges from her bower, attended by three maidens; her mere presence invokes cool power and beauty. Suspended from fine, beaded ropes, the central crystal, flanked by three rivolis draws the eye down to an opulent drop bead; each crystal is lightly held in filigree beadwork. The Ice Princess beaded crystal pendant is worked almost entirely in variations of Hubble stitch and is an exciting piece to wear. The techniques used to make each element of this piece are easily adapted to other cabochons.
The techniques covered in this design are challenging and exciting, and there will be tutor-led discussions on tailoring the components for incorporation into further designs.
The golden topaz version is called Sun Goddess and the dark blue olive version is called Sahara Spirit – Kits will be available.
