Thing 182

Last night I splurged. Instead of using scraps of beading wire to make yet another bracelet, I pulled out the spool of wire and made a necklace. I could make it as long as I wanted! (As it turns out, it’s actually pretty short.)

It’s a mix of glass, Swarovski pearls, metal rounds and seed beads. The pearly seed beads are pretty but, oh, what a pain to string. That part took the longest. To finish it off, a simple and delicate clasp was called for and this gold-filled hook-and-eye fit the bill.
