So, for my friend's birthday I want to make her a necklace/choker. But not just ANY necklace/choker; I want to make her a beadwoven replica of Belldandy's golden collar-looking thing, like this:
(taken from a blog of someone who I totally forgot to reference but the necklace looks amazing and I panicked while being hasty)
Ah! My Goddess is one of her favorite animes, and I want to replace the hair-pulling painted plastic and foam piece of junk I made her for her cosplay costume.
I've been working on peyote samples, and would like to make the entire thing with this stich, all in size 11 gold lined glass beads (I have 2 HUGE tubes of 'em) BUT I has a problem: The dip in the collar. How could I get it to work, because increasing/decreasing isn't working out, and I'm afraid to try structuring it with wire because I won't have enough room for wire, needle and thread.
In other words... help?
