I bought most of these beads in a big bin of bead soup. I had in my head how I wanted the final necklace to look like, but I took it apart twice before I had it like I pictured. I think it turned out well in the end. I am made a simple 3 strand bracelet to match. What do you think?
I had a lot of coral after a custom necklace order, so I decided to make a large statement piece. I did not have a pattern or even much of a plan. I just started weaving, braiding, and layering different strands of coral. The center charm is the only part that is not actually coral. After playing around with it for awhile, this is what I ended up with.
