I just LOVE how this one turned out, I had to share it with my Craftsters!!!

Its done in black glass and red agate in two different shapes/sizes.  I tried really hard to keep the spacing imperfect (it was hard! i was sooo tempted to count beads!!).  It has an adjustable chain back and i strung it on black nylon thread.  Hope you guys like! Smiley

That's great! I know what you mean about wanting to count the beads - but the random effect works brilliantly in this piece  Smiley

Those colors look awesome together! I love red agate. I think it looks great not having to count the beads in between each big bead. I am the same way. I always want it to be exactly the same number! It looks great. You did a wonderful job on it. Smiley  Grin

I know what you mean! It's like as soon as you make an order you see something else you wanted! I am about to put in a huge order with a friend here soon. I let her look at my catalog and she's had it for two weeks trying to figure out what she wants to order. Smiley
