As you can see the hand woven beads remain and I have added some big hole beads over some seed beads which give the necklace some movement. I really like this style of necklace, I made one similar for myself a while ago and I wear it a lot.
This is a lively colourful version which also has some hand woven beads. I also made a pair of earrings to match this necklace, but I forgot to take a picture of them. I have also dipped into my copper wire box this week.
This design is based on the 'Brangle' that I made during a workshop with Lush and Mizgeorge. I treated myself to one of Jolene's mini-mo boxes of glassy goodies! The parcel contains some twisties, murrini and shards. The mini-mo is a great for pushing me out of my comfort zone of my usual pallette. I rarely work in yellow and lime greens but I am pleased with the way this turned out.
I am hoping to get my act together and to get these pieces and others posted on Folksy for sale so I will keep you posted.
Enjoy the sun while it's still shining folks!
