In loving memory of my sweet kitty Oscar.
I had a bunch of these Swarovski star pendants on my worktable for making my holiday gifts, and I just loved looking at them! I spent sometime playing with the design of the center pendant on this necklace. At first I wanted to make a large piece with lots of stars then decided that simple and delicate was the way to go. Bezel a sparkly marquis crystal and built settings off the points to set in the stars. The center pendant measures approximately 3 inches from point to point and the chain is made using herringbone stitch with 15/0 seed beads to make it smooth and delicate. This was a quick project to finish and I will think of my Oscar every time I wear it.

This necklace is the perfect tribute to someone you loved or have loved and lost. The stars look like they are shooting stars which is how I like to think of my loved ones: stars in an infinite universe.
The whole project works up very quickly. I am not a fast beader and I was able to make the necklace and earrings in a weekend. The instructions are top notch. It was almost like Liisa was looking over my shoulder guiding me where to place each stitch. Once completed, the set has enough sparkle to be seen across a room! It's a perfect necklace.
