I finished my latest project -- the necklace to match the earrings at the end of my last blog entry. It's my version of Maria Teresa Moran's pattern for a bracelet, which I modified to make into a necklace. Turned out, well..., gorgeous! It drapes nicely on the neck. Many hours of bugling, so to speak, ha ha, but nice effect. And, I don't usually like repetition, but this pattern was a lot of fun so it kept my interest.
|A large crystal centerpiece, with twisted bugle beads around the focal, 6 mm bicone crystal and 8 sb and 15 sb inside the bugles. Smaller triangles thereafter with two different bugle beads, matte and shiny, with 11 sb, 15 sb and 4mm bicones.|
|Necklace and earrings. Nice combo.|
