never to be duplicated
at least not by me.
Not any time soon.
I absolutely love the way this necklace came out
but it was the biggest pain in the butt.
Granted, I have to fight the urge to be a perfectionist and sometimes I lose,
like with the components of this necklace.
Which means a lot of the time consuming part was me tearing out
and re-doing the seed bead parts.
(Seed beads. I hate them but I am addicted to them. Go figure.)
This necklace started with the focal made by Juls of JulsBeads
(if you've been around a while, you know I am also addicted to her work
or should I say her art)
Each one of her beads is a work of art and whenever I make a piece of
jewelry that contains her beads I always feel like it "needs to be worthy".
That's when the perfectionist kicks in.
Juls focal, swarovski crystals, black onyx, polymer clay disks,
tubular peyote and spiral rope stitch
I had a vision of the finished piece before I started and this came pretty close.
I like it☺
