The long holiday weekend has let me spend more time beading than I have been able to for weeks. WooHoo!!
The necklace inspiration I talked about most recently is working out really well. I got the entire base bead covered with fringe and then small loops between the fringe. I just strung it on some wire to photograph it, and yes, the picture is really sucko. I can't get the focus proper for some reason.
But it'll give an idea. This central bead will be the most elaborate, I will make several (5-7) more smaller ones for each side of the work.
I love the flat amber chips. The fringe dangles and looks different with every twist. All the colors blend wonderfully, too.
It's so good just to sit and create. Isn't it?
