Leather Necklace with Cellini Spiral Stitch and Russian Artist Tree of Life Pendant
designed byCynthia Kimura
Skill LevelIntermediate

The pendant at the center of this necklace is one of my favorite Russian Artist pieces. The unique pattern of the Cellini Spiral stitch works wonderfully with the spiraling branches of the tree on the pendant.

Beautiful textures combine in this breathtaking necklace design. Cynthia created a textured foundation for the highly detailed Russian artist focal bead by sliding a seed bead Cellini spiral stitch rope over strands of rich leather. A Kabela Design filigree holds the focal in place magnificently. Accents like TierraCast findings and textured rings complete this look you'll love creating and wearing.
