The look of a necklace can change dramatically depending on the color of the crochet thread. I accented the beads in this design with a dark tone.
Actress Ellen Terry portrays Lady Macbeth in a green crocheted dress decorated with jewel beetle wings in a famous John Singer Sargent painting. Our necklace is a perfect homage to that iconic costume. Cheri used a simple crochet stitch to decorate her green thread with Swarovski beads displaying the magical Crystal Scarabaeus Green effect. The shimmering beads twinkle among the thread, just like the beetle wings in Lady Macbeth's dress.
