The Gatsby Necklace

Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg and Emily Miller

When planning his 1925 masterpiece, F. Scott Fitzgerald said he wanted “something new—something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned.” We couldn’t think of a better way to describe this beautiful cascade of freshwater pearls, ceylon seed beads, and faceted crystal.

So ring in the Roaring 2018s in lush decadence! Strung easily on Soft Flex with a gleaming Czech glass Daisy (Buchanan) button for the clasp, the ladies have a few tricks up their sleeves that you'll be delighted to learn and apply to other stringing projects.

Check out our recipe page to create a design in colors you choose, too!
