Psalm 23 Necklace

Artists often work in series and I’m no exception.

The idea for this crystal beaded bracelet depicting the 23rd Psalm, using a different colored bead to represent the idea behind every line:

Led to this idea for a boho style Psalm 23 bracelet:

Which in turn started me thinking about a designing a necklace, something using the same colors but with smaller, more beads.

As a young girl, my favorite was an Add-a-pearl necklace I wore each year on my birthday, with a new pearl for every year:

The 3 mm beads are lovely, but not bold enough to create a contrast in colors. I kept looking and these rondelles caught my eye.

A rondelle bead is one that is round and flat. They are used as spacers between larger beads and as accents. I think these beauties can work well all by themselves.

After much experimentation, I ended up with two different styles for the Psalm 23 necklaces. The first uses sparkly faceted crystal rondelles:

The second is a smooth rondelle version with beads of various sheens:

Each necklace is 17 inches long, but has an extender and can be lengthened up to 20 inches. More photos and information are found in my etsy shop,
