Lapis Lazuli necklace

This is a necklace worked with lapis lazuli and silver. This is the second time I make this same kind of pendant, and it's mix of various different techniques:

1) The bail is made woven in Ladder weave;
2) The flower is attached using Charms and Extensions;
3) The frame is worked with a Coiled Bezel Frame.


The final touch is to add a series of beads stitched to the edge of the pendant, and a necklace strung with lapis lazuli, iolite and silver beads.
