|Full length Celtic knot loomed necklace|
I love this necklace. I love the colors: amber beads with an iris finish, silver hued dark green, and ivory colored beads with a pearl finish. I love the crystals and pearls of the fringe. I revel in the feel of this necklace; it is smooth and silky to the hand and let me tell you that fringe is great fun to play with when you are wearing the necklace
What I don’t like about this necklace is the length. From end to end this necklace is 27 inches. When I designed this necklace I counted the rows of another loomed piece. What I didn’t count on is that my size 11 beads were larger than the beads in the necklace I used to calculate the number of rows I would need.
Despite the length, and my short stature, I wear this necklace on occasion.
