Large glass beads, 18g eye pins
What was your inspiration?
I found a wonderful selection of these gorgeous glass beads on Fire Mountain Gems at a great price and they just needed to become this beautiful neckace but I wanted to do something different than my previous pieces so I browsed all my magazines for a new technique to use to make them into something wearable. I learned this wire loop technique over the course of a couple weeks and am still perfecting it but it is a fun way to bring beads, charms and pendants together to create all sorts of wonderfun, beautiful things.
What are you most proud of?
I am proud of mysel for learning this technique and I absolutely love the colors with the flower connectors!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Use what you love! Create something you love, use colors you love and beads that speak to you! It is your style, your passion and you have to love what you create and wear. It has to make you feel good!
