Type of item: Accessory
Miscellaneous shell, glass and wooden beads, beading wire (such as Beadalon), crimp beads, bronze beads, chain, clasp, and earring hooks.
What was your inspiration?
My friend Carol asked for a shell necklace and earrings.
What are you most proud of?
She gave me free reign with the design, and loved it! She tells me that she gets compliments on it all the time.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
When making a multi-strand necklace, use the same beads on different strands (gives the necklace some coherence), but stagger them so they don't line up.
