Autumn’s Turquoise Nugget Choker Necklace

As you all know, I am always happy to fulfill custom requests, and this is one I’m exceptionally proud of.  My dear friend Autumn showed me this colossal turquoise nugget a few evenings ago, and expressed how much she liked it but was unable to wear it.  She had not found any necklace sturdy and aesthetically acceptable enough to showcase such a spectacular specimen.  So of course I volunteered my services.

Autumn was kind enough to allow me full artistic reign over the project, trusting me to “just make it look nice.”  The only stipulations were that it was dark in color and constructed of hemp cord.

After contemplating several design ideas, I finally settled on this, which I personally think is an exceptionally elegant concept for women’s jewelry.  It is constructed using 8 strands (2 colors with 4 strands each), which are initially split into 2 groups and knotted into double helix spirals using the Half Hitch Knot method.  The lacy main body is made using a series of alternating Square Knots, which are punctuated by 3-strand-wide Josephine Knots.  The necklace is woven directly through the bail of the turquoise nugget, and is accented by an additional 3 Josephine Knots.  A loop is left on one end and a pair of long 4 strand braids on the other, so the necklace can be tied quickly and simply.

Autumn absolutely adored her new choker, and it fit perfectly.  I confess, I really like it too, and I will probably have no choice but to make something similar for myself in the near future.  If you’re anything like me and would love a necklace like this as well, please feel free to contact me so we can discuss design details, measurements, etc
