Rock Star Bead Embroidered Neckpiece $1,375 For this neckpiece, I chose the most richly jewel-colored beads in my rainbow trove – emerald, sapphire, garnet, peridot, opal, amethyst, and more. I also used pinks, greens and blues galore. The center focal stone seems to be granite, but all the other beads are glass. The beads encrust several sandwiched layers of nonwoven materials. I edged the neckpiece with cobalt and purple seed beads. I made the hook and eye clasp from gold-filled wire.
