The Year of the Tiger

The Year of the Tiger

This beautiful matinee style heavily beaded necklace and earring set is truly a one of a kind set. I have created the tiger beads individually by hand and they are a one of a kind set.

All the dangles that you see here have been individually wrapped using tiger eye chips, Swarovski crystals, Czech glass beads, gold seed beads and round red tiger eye beads. Each strand was created by hand and then mounted on the necklace.

The necklace is strung with more round red tiger eye beads and gold tone spacers.

To finish the piece off, I placed additional tiger eye chips giving it a lot of sparkle and richness. It has a toggle clasp at the back of the neck.

The weight is surprisingly light and it feels great on while the loads of sparkle and movement makes it catch all the lights in the room.

The earrings are a lush mix of tiger eye chips and red tiger eye rounds with Swarovski crystals and seed beads to round them out. They are mounted on a leverback set of earrings.

This is a fantastic piece and it can be worn as a jean piece or as a stunning piece for a formal night out.
