Contemporary Ukrainian necklaces

A young lady preparing for her graduation wanted a necklace to wear that would honour her Ukrainian heritage. Maria of Rypan Designs was asked to design something (I did the final pieces).

This piece is a colour variation of Maria's popular cascading swag design. We used cream and gold beads for a fresh, modern version to match the grad's dress.

This piece has a more traditional base. It starts with a basic netted collar with cream and gold beads. The lower edge is embellished with loops of larger cream and gold beads.  The extender chain is finished off with a loop of beads the same as on the necklace.

Both pieces are on their way to this lucky young lady. I hope that she wears them with grace and pride.
