so this is my first post ever.
i love craftster but i've never gotten around to posting anything i make.
but tonight i have no homework.  and i crafted.  and i like my crafting.
so i've decided to make my first official post. Cheesy

so basically i took both soft flex and thick wire and 6/0 and 8/0 seed beads, did some twisting around a skewer. and got this necklace!  i just got a job as a jewelry designer/maker at our bead store downtown.  is it cute and fun or cheesy?


the necklace!


close up of the twistage action!


close up of how i ended the "nonflexible wire" (can't think of what to properly name it) and then finished with a toggle


on me!

i really like this necklace.  it's my style.  fun and carefree and all over the place!

ok that is all!  happy crafting!

p.s. my shirt doesn't say cuba.  it says scuba Cheesy

It is cute, and I can see it being more quirky/fun if you used constrasting/complementary colors for the different parts (twisty and non-twisty) too.

I really like using the same color for both strands. I think it's great, just my style.

i would totally buy it. a few tweaks, and it would be perfect. you could try adding larger beads on the twisty part... that might look cool... that is such a unique idea, i love it!

I think it is really cool - it kind of looks like a DNA helix - it will definitely sell.  Great job!

Not cheesy!  Cute and fun.  You could even head in the elegant direction if you used, say, shiny black stone beads.  It seems like this basic form could be transformed into a lot of different types of necklaces/bracelets, per everyone's suggestions.  I personally love the monochromatic bright red.

i love it! its such a cute simple idea and a great way to work with color. (i think i might try a few myself- im not really huge on jewelry making so this kinda simplicity is right up my ally)
i would for sure buy it and they would display nicely with a bunch in different bright colors.
i agree with the wonderfulness of the monochromatic scheme but trying other ways could be fun too.
keep it up!
