I made this piece for the a monthly challenge...the theme this month being "Complimentary Contradictions".
I used a bunch of different types of beads. Swarovski glass pearls, delica seed beads, toho seed beads, czech firepolished beads, swarovski crystals squares and one circle crystal for the clasp. I put a lot of energy into making my hands do what I saw in my head, and I'm quite pleased with the result.

Wow! It's gorgeous. Reminds me a bit of squash blossom necklaces and the circle things which I can't remember what they are called.

I thought this was a concho belt from the thumbnail. A concho belt is traditionally worn by Navajos, with a peasant style skirt, sometimes velvet, and a button down collared blouse. They use it as currency. When they need money, they'll pawn the belt, and then go buy it back. I say this in the present tense because it's still being done in certain pawn shops in the Southwest USA.
Anyway, it's a beautiful piece of work. It looks like it belongs in a gallery.

Concho is the word I was trying to think of. Thanks.
If I only had money to shop in pawn shops, esp in the southwest.
