Lapis Beaded Collar

With sixteen, hand-selected beads of lapis lazuli sewn along the sides, this collar provides a rustic, yet natural beauty to the wearer.

The bright blue contrasts nicely against the two earthen tones and soft, rabbit fur liner.

This piece is something that I’d wanted to try out for quite some time, but just hadn’t gotten around
to doing so.

In all honesty, lapis wasn’t the original choice in beads for the collar. I had gotten some African Blue Apatite (think mother nature’s blue raspberry jolly ranchers), but the thread I use was barely just too big. Alas, while sad I couldn’t use it, the substitution wasn’t any less striking and beautiful.
