Turquoise Patterned & Painted Bead Scissor String

Out of stock

This is a very special combination as the large bead is hand painted and was bought in India just before the pandemic. I have threaded the beads on Nymo Beading Thread and added a large gold-plated lobster claw clasp to take the scissors. The Italian chatelaine scissors are quite beautifully made and are fiendishly sharp.

String, without the scissors, measures 8in (20cm).

The story of this little treasure

I make all my scissor strings from recycled necklaces and bracelets. I have a penchant for big jewellery (a lady of my dimensions must consider scale!), so I do tend to buy things in my colour palette and then they head for my bead box when I get tired of them. There is nothing quite as satisfying as making these treasures and sourcing pretty scissors to suit them. I have real pearl earrings and necklaces that are my staples, but after that anything goes!
