Our Brass Heart Pendant Necklace is a beautiful piece created with metallic iris glass seed beads, brass round and elongated spacer beads, Czech glass capri beads, turquoise washed, etched sage Czech Picasso fire polished beads and brown jasper gemstone beads. A 1 by 1-inch floating brass alloy flower-embossed heart pendant seals this sweetheart deal.
The Czech Picasso fire polished beads feature a wonderful combination of light and dark turquoise, sage green, and light brown. Picasso beads feature a high quality, luster coating that appears more speckled and may also appear spotted, giving the beads a natural, earthy appearance. Most often, colors used with the Picasso finish are in the natural and neutral color ranges from subtle grays, blues, greens, browns, beiges and yellows. The process of “polishing” used in Czech glass beadmaking employs heat rather than abrasion to buff a bead’s faceted surfaces. The heat causes the surfaces of the bead to melt just enough that they become shiny. Picasso + Polishing = Gorgeous!
Darker brown jasper gemstone stone beads pick up the brown in the Picasso’s. I repeated the turquoise theme to lighten up the overall color palette by utilizing the sparkly capri beads.
Tiny, metallic iris seeds beads vary in color and bring an interesting, richness to the 20-inch necklace.
The pendant, of course, is the heart of the necklace. Pun very much intended! It’s off-center orientation immediately demands attention. Small daisy flowers are embossed on both sides adding nice detail to the low maintenance brass alloy charm. I chose a cute heart-shaped brass alloy toggle clasp which matches the motif of the pendant.
Looking for a perfect gift for someone you care about or wanting to treat yourself to beautiful jewelry? (C’mon, you deserve it!) This sweetheart Brass Heart Pendant necklace fits the bill on both counts!
