Just finished this necklace last night. I have to tell ya. I wasn’t sure where I was going with this design. But as I kept beading, the vision became clearer. I knew what embellishments were needed and how to finish off the ends to add the clasp.
The idea for this necklace came from the Fan Earrings I made from the book, Mastering Beadwork by Carol Huber Cypher. Using the same technique. Stringing wire and brick stitch.
Here’s how the necklace looks with the fan earrings.
And with the two bracelets made from the same Bead Soup mix.
I have enough of this seed bead mixture left to make a couple more things. I am really liking mixing up seed beads. I never thought to do it until now. Normally I work with solid colors, but I like the variety of the mixed look.
