It can be a worn for a the most glamorous evening occasion or with a daytime outfit. Imagine it in turquoise or red coral chips with your favourite sweater and jeans - or a little black dress. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Collar is adjusted to fit the wearer.

Recommended with this pattern

  • Gemstone chips - about 3 or 4 strands
  • A few small pearls or crystals (optional)
  • 7 x 1.75 metre lengths of 0.4mm (26 gauge) silver wire

I live in Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia, close to the spectacular sailing country of the Kimberley, Western Australia. I like the feeling that Darwin is still the Last Frontier in some ways, except when I'm trying to source materials for my craftwork, when I have to rely heavily on the Internet and Australia Post. I've been involved in some sort of craftwork all my life, once the "soft" crafts like embroidery and crochet but now more likely to involve wire and gemstones, pearls or polymer clay.
