Kit # 1 - Mrs. Marshall: Black Cherry & White Celtic Garden Necklace ©2000 by Cynthia RutledgeThe beauty of nature has astounded artists since the beginning of time. From painting to sculpture to music, artists have used their inspiration to create the masterpieces of their time. Celtic Garden Necklace is a tribute to Ireland and is the second piece in my Garden Necklace Series. Wild fuchsias are a stark contrast against the intense green foliage and the dramatic geography that appears along Ireland's famous cliffs.

This neckpiece focuses on a three dimensional fuchsia constructed in peyote stitch, single and double, circular and flat. The petals are constructed using 2-drop peyote stitch. The petals are stitched to a beaded form to give the flower volume and shape. The upper layer of petals flow into a bail connection so that the flower hangs from the necklace as a pendant. One peyote, one Herringbone and one Herringbone variation necklace tube come together to lend texture and pattern to the necklace. The necklace components are gathered into a beaded closure.

FYI: Each kit is inspired by and named after a real fuchsia.
