I saw this necklace online and I realize it is crystal and not beaded. I would love to make a necklace with a similar shape, but beaded. Any ideas on how to achieve this look? Peyote stitch perhaps? I welcome any ideas and thoughts!
I think cubic RAW might work.

I think making a series of herringbone-stitch bands and then attaching them together would work. You could use clear silver-lined beads or maybe even small pearls in a few sizes to create the arches and maybe ladder stitch for the sections on the band supporting the arches.
The piece is stunning. I believe that although cubic right angle would work, however I think it may be too thick and not be flat enough to achieve the look of this flat piece. I think the herringbone, or a herringbone, peyote combination could possible be an answer.
I think there may be many ways to recreate this look with beads, you just need to experiment with it until you are happy with the look.
Try a combination of stitches: square for the main collar (in sections), herringbone for the draping curves, ...?
Just work at it til you're happy with the result. Would love to see your finished piece.
