The neckpiece I made using fiber wrapped cord with a wire of beads entwined through it. The green color of the beads is brought out by the lighter fiber that I used. I just love this "Starry Night" piece!
|Aren't these beads beautiful!|
I then made some earrings from the beads as well. They are simple but will compliment the neckpiece beautifully.
Then I got brave and started working with the rest of the beads to make a bracelet that does not have any fiber in it!!! I used the beautiful clasp that Melissa sent me on the bracelet. I am getting better at wire wrapping so I am pretty happy with how it turned out. My 26 year old daughter liked it too.... for her to say that she would wear this bracelet made my day!
Thank you so much Melissa! I really enjoyed looking at the beads while I worked with them. They are mesmerizing and so interesting! You can visit Melissa's blog here. Her Etsy shop is one-eared pig beads. She has some beautiful jewelry in her shop.
