What was your inspiration?
The bezel is a mixture of Perri Jackson's (ShaktipajDesigns) beautiful bead and woven wire bezels:
the band of her Blue Heaven ring:
and different techniques I've learned from her wonderful Rose of Sharon Pendant Tutorial: http://www.etsy.com/listing/112055690/holiday-sale-rose-of-sharon-coiled?.
The netted beads are inspired by Delia Stone's wonderful work: http://www.deliastone.com/; she's definitely the queen of needlelace.
The first time I saw the Flemish Knot links was on the wigjig website.
A friend from the US sent me patterned wire called Whim-Z which looks really cool. I used it for the beadcaps and the links and really like the combination of the patterned, smooth and coiled wire.
29mm round cab, 10mm and 12mm faceted round beads, copper wire and beads
What are you most proud of?
The bezel is a combination of RAW (I've learned a lot about beadweaving with wire from Perri's Tangled Love Heart Pendant tutorial, http://www.etsy.com/listing/111670799/holiday-sale-tangled-love-sterling? and the Chantilly Lace Ring Tutorial, http://www.etsy.com/listing/115814337/holiday-sale-chantilly-lace-silver-wire?) and techniques I've learned from the Rose of Sharon tutorial. She makes it really easy to accomplish complicated looking designs. Plus they are so versatile and complement each other excellently and can be perfectly combined with one another. The Rose of Sharon tut is one of my all time favorites. But I'm not sure whether I would have thought about it without the inspiration of her beautiful bead woven wire bezels.
