original necklace design
CANYON TWILIGHT is the sister piece to Canyon Sunrise. The necklace is an interpretation of how the light gets reflected and absorbed by the walls of the Grand Canyon at twilight.
Swarovski faceted cubes (Series 5601) and faceted rounds (Series 5000) tell nature’s story. These crystal beads are bead-woven together using the Ndebele Stitch. This stitch is used to create two-staggered-layers of alternating cubes and double-stacked rounds in a herringbone arrangement. These Ndebele-stitched crystal beads represent the canyon walls at twilight – an expression of diminishing glimmers of crystal/copper, amethyst AB, lime AB, crystal golden shadow, jet and touches of burgundy.
The necklace is lined with a gold-filled patterned cable chain – capturing the first brilliant golden light of the morning sun that bathes the plateau and outlines the canyon crest.
As the necklace encircles the neck, it reminds you of the seemingly endlessness of the canyon walls. The staggered 2-layer strips of Ndebele-stitched cubes and rounds, representing these canyon walls, result in two special design effects. First, they create an unexpected multi-dimensionality. Second, they intensify and more sharply delineate the colors.
clasp assembly, interconnected pieces as if constructed by nature, is
made up of 14KT gold hooks, anchors and rings.
