Another bezelled rivoli

This is a fresh (and I think an improved) version of a design I first made last summer. The black diamond rivoli is bezelled using a combination of RAW and peyote, then embellished with two layers of netting. The straps are two needle symmetrical netting, an improvement on the original, which was single needle asymmetrical netting. black diamond greymauve2The other improvement is the clasp. I nearly always make a beaded clasp which echoes the design of the necklace. The original version of this necklace had a beaded toggle and ring clasp, with a ring which had the same netted embellishment as the rivoli bezel. This one has a double toggle and ring, and I will make a second double toggle with a longer joining strap so the overall length of the necklace is adjustable.
