A week of work told in beads…

Jewelry

I’ve mentioned this before, but for those who are new and thought I only going to bead stores giving critiques, I very much admire the artist Laura Mccabe.  Her work is fantastic.  One day I will be designing pieces that are on her level of artistic perfection.  So… as you have probably guessed, the following piece is one of her kits.  The Eiffel Tower bracelet.

Geisha Flower Necklace

Another day and another necklace.  I made this last fall while I was still in DC.  However, I never thought to bring clasps with me to finish the pieces I made in the northeast (either bead stores were inconvenient to get to or they did not have quite what I was looking for).  So when I returned home after graduation I picked up clasps to complete my projects.

Tonight I present the Geisha Flower necklace.  It was a lot of fun to make and I love the colors I chose to give depth to the focal piece.  Again, I did a ndebele chain (as suggested by the BeadCulture pattern) to complete the necklace.  The chain really give the piece a bit of romance and beauty.
