Beadalon wire, 3 different mixes of seed beads, large crimp beads (must accomodate 6 strands of Beadalon), Aluminum chain, Aqua cotton cord, Tibetan silver nugget, Lobster Claw Clasp
What was your inspiration?
My stash of seed beads!
What are you most proud of?
I finally got the weight balanced. I had a different silver focal bead, but it wasn't heavy enough to balance out the weight difference between the heavier braid and the lighter chain. The nugget helps it lay right.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try something else if the first thing doesn't work. Correct balance is essential unless you want your work spinning around someone's neck!
