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.
