I just finished attaching the fringe to a peyote stitch base made from hex beads.  I love this necklace - the beads all have a great metallic sheen to them so they all look more like hematite than anything else - the photos don't really do it justice because it is not capturing the shine.  I have a few more hex bead peyote bands I made in different finishes that I may do this with too.  This one is likely destined to be a gift for DHs sister, or a friend to moved to Saudi earlier this year.

I really love this one, but don't have the neck to carry it off. 

What do you think, comments are appreciated.  I'm starting to think about making some stuff for ebay or something.

It looks beautiful. I made something similar to this (except in multi colored beads) but the branching was only towards the front of the neck and god did it take FOREVER.

I think these would definitely sell if you take that step. good luck with it.

You must have a load of patience!

::Gushing:: OMG IF you do put it up please PM ME!!!!!!! That is absolutely stunning! It must have taken hours upon hours! I am so envious! If I tried to do that I would probably throw it away in frustration Grin Great job! Truly!

One suggestion-- look up the photo box tute if you are going to sale your jewelry this shows you how to make a light box for proper photos and it just might give you the shine that you say the current pics lack. Cheesy

WOW That is AMAZING. I just stared at the picture for a while. It honestly is one of the most beautiful pieces of beaded jewelry I've ever seen. You should be incredibly proud of yourself and your talent!

Wow that looks like something an actress would wear to the Oscars and she would say that it was a $10,000 necklace.

Thanks everyone - I have a few more to make for Christmas, and it definitely goes quicker with practice.  Perhaps after Christmas, I will start considering making some to sell.

The question is how to price them???

Here is a second one I finished.  Both were wrapped for the SILs - one sent to BC last week, the other under the tree for Christmas.  This second one is done with a blue iridescent/iris bead - but some deep blue translucents got mixed in - a really neat effect if you hold it up to the light (couldn't take a pic of that).  Also, I did not have enough iris bugles, so used some of the black ones from the other necklace too:





Dang, I thought the pics were better - it doesn't show the colours well - shifting metallic blues/purples/greys with a bit of silvery/goldy sheen.  Oh well.

AMAZING.   Cheesy it's so great!  if you don't mind me asking... what do you use to string the fringe on?  beading wire or something else?

Thanks.  I use size A Nymo to string everything.  I need to be able to pass the needle and thread through the beads multiple times, so beading wire would not work - it would not thread through multiple times, and would probably break if it was thin enough to anyways.  I have also used C-lon for thread for stringing and netting beads too - both I condition with beeswax or Thread Heaven (I prefer the latter) for better strength and suppleness, and to diminish fraying.

Man oh man this coral fringe takes forever. This is a big project for something this tedious, and it looks great! I made a bracelet like this years ago, and my hands nearly fell off Wink I love the peyote base you worked it off of, very pretty.
