What materials did you use? The striking central detail is made using a piece of Amethyst, which I have set in a Viking knit bezel, from this hangs a dangle made with a Garnet and a faceted Amethyst drop. The six lengths of Viking knit chain fan out from the central Amethyst stone, creating an eye catching effect. The necklace is 19" long. The central detail is is 3" from the top of the amethyst stone, to the bottom of the drop. The central stone measures 1 1/2" in it's setting.

Your Viking knit is just amazing. Mine is not looking too even yet but still working on that. Over all design again - amazing. Love your creative style - always impressive

exquisite Abby, simply exquisite. Where can I learn the almost spiderweb support for the main stone that moves around and supports it??...I have seen this weave with several of your pieces....I think??? I'm sure I have. and I simply love it. What a nice change from the more common loopty loop for which I have found in so many projects...This entire piece somehow makes me think spider...Now intentional or unintentional. I do not know, I do know however it fits the project so well. Forgive me if It seems I am stalking you a bit and yes, I think I am. I would be thrilled to learn you have created a video teaching here on Craftsy and share some of your secrets. I learn so much better this way and not so much in pictures and written instructions. It would be the most important group of taped video lessons on this website. Thank you Ms Abby

Thank you so much Delories. I do plan to write a tutorial for this setting but it will be a PDF rather than a video I am afraid. I think the spider thoughts come from the web effect of the setting and the many 'legs' of the necklace :)

For me It was evident what you were saying with the many legs and then the web surrounding the huge gorgeous stone.I simply love it and it makes me happy to know I was able to see what you were portraying here without coming and saying it...:)
