The Avalon Necklace
©1997 by Cynthia Rutledge

The Avalon Necklace - ©1997 by Cynthia RutledgeShrouded in the mist there was a faraway place called Avalon. Many thought it was real and many a myth. The mist concealed a place of great beauty and the people therein were mostly women. Many were highly spiritual and had special powers that helped them deal with the outside world.

This piece was named after this magical place because the vessel is actually 2 layers. The inside layer isn’t seen until the lid is lifted to reveal the support layer of the vessel. The inner layer is peyote stitch with a decreased base. I use the outer layer of the vessel as a foundation for embellishments and fringe. The piece is completed with an embellished lid, a wonderful beaded bail and a peyote tube necklace.

Skill level: Intermediate to advanced.
