I only recently started playing with beads. I was inspired mainly by what I saw on craftster to start taking it up.
It wasn't until one of my sisters wanted requested something 'fashionable' for Christmas that I thought I was really stuck. I had planned to hand-make all of my sisters gifts (being unemployed). But usually they turn out to be some kind of kitchy novelty craft. This is when I decided to take the plunge and create a piece of jewelry.
It is my first complete project with beads, so be nice
I created little tubes (? I don't know what else to call them ) and joined them to create each link. I then used a piece of ribbon and chunky wooden bead to finish off the necklace.
(the large wooden bead was originally brown, but i painted it with black nail polish)
I also put it on my blog, but it is mainly the same thing I posted here.
C&C are very welcome! I was thinking about making a matching bracelet as well
