What materials did you use? seed beads ans DK weight yarn

Yes, yes, I am an experimenter. You should see the pile of fibre I have collected in the past few weeks. Try a carrier thread for yarns that are too thick, I see you have stones in the mix of beads, have you though of trying some of the clon or mastex/conso cords? I use those for micromacrame, and knotting with semi precious beads, I reckon that would work a tread, you can try to use some glue on the thread to stiffen up an "artificial needle" that way you are not trying to force something the size of a melon through a hole the size of a lemon.

This necklace is just about finished. Sorry I have been out of touch, I have been hosting a workshop in addition to working. Tomorrow the pic will come.

I love the way that you strung your beads. Is than an adjustable I-cord closure? Brilliant. :-)

Yes... I dreamed it up after not liking any of the regular findings for this kind of necklace. Easy... just end the icord with any cool beads then, make a small wrapper with Kitchner graft do the slider. Attach both your strung beads and the adjustable icord to any appropriate donuts . Thanks for liking it!
