I've mentioned before how I'm a little OCD. (Don't believe me, go to my shop and search "carnaval") So, when I started thinking about what to create for this challenge, I went right back to my Budding Stones design.
This time I paired faceted gemstone beads with deep blood-red beads and some larger seed beads with a pearlized finish.
I think Venus would be proud.
I also used bead caps (what are those?) to surround the bead at the top of the drop.
I also added a lot of chain and made it adjustable. So you can wear it short.
Or long, if you're feeling like a night out at the opera. The Venus Opera Necklace is in my shop if you'd like to take a closer look.
Also, do you remember when I sent a few things to Kristie Roeder to help out with her Bead Fest show? Well, this lovely necklace sold! If the person who bought it is out there reading this, I never got to officially thank you. I hope you enjoy your piece!
Well, the second piece that I sent her didn't sell at the show, so I'm listing Encircled Bead Embroidered Pendant in my shop.
Kristie also sent me a few more of these little connectors to play with. Yes, these were connectors and I..um, lovingly, snipped the wire off of them, because, as you guys know, stringing does not come naturally to me, plus I think they look great as cabs!
