Black, gold, and brown seed beads. Gold wire, crimp tubes and clasp. Colored upholstery thread, needle.
What was your inspiration?
Inspired by Donna and the beading book she mailed me.
Seed bead choker, threaded beads hanging from wire. One needle, one thread completed this project. Then I went over the whole thing with a second thread, because I am like that!! Has a wonderful ruffle effect when worn.
What are you most proud of?
The unexpected ruffle effect. Figuring out how to take a pillow fringe pattern and make it into a necklace.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try not to put your needle through the thread!
