Turquoise Wire Necklace

This necklace is a combination of stringing plus freeform wire-wrapping:

It is a custom order for a customer; she provided the beautiful turquoise pendant, and wanted a "wow" necklace to complement it.

I strung azurite/malachite, freshwater pearls, sterling silver, and Swarovski crystals, and then started wrapping around the necklace with seed beads, freshwater pearls, turquoise, and more Swarovskis. The wire-wrapping swirls around the necklace like a floating cloud, and I'm crazy about the finished necklace!
