I love making necklace with variations of this shape, hojas, Spanish for leaves. Because I use seed beads, I can play with colors in a way that other patterns don’t let me. The name of the necklace are a tribute to my Mexican roots.
I weave each hoja separately, picking up the beads one by one. Then I stitch the pieces together to create this focal that loos like a Celtic knot. I’ve finished the focal with an antique brass chain, whose shape echos the the shape of the woven piece.
Fully extend the necklaces measures 20.25 inches long, but you can go smaller. The chain is an open link that will allow you to choose the length. The central hoja is 1.75 inches long.
Your necklace will arrive loving packaged for you or whoever you might gift.
Thank you for shopping.
