I don't know what else to call it, so I'm going with a starburst.  Grin



I found a beautiful version of this necklace in a Fire Mountain Gems and Beads catalog and I knew I had to make my own version.  the original had a very southwest name...but I don't know it and the website doesn't say it.  Undecided  oh well.  you can see the original one here.

yeah.  you're right!  I need to make this with metallic beads!!!  I just don't have any of the Tila (flat squares) beads in metallics.  Sad  I have everything else though...

Lovely, as usual! And I agree with I Sew Cute, it looks a bit like a gear. It would definitely look Steampunk if you had metallics.

thanks as usual FG.  Cheesy  since she mentioned the gear, I am going to try to get my hands on some metallic Tila beads this weekend (I'm going to another bead show!!!).  if I can't find them there, I'll just have to go online and grab some.

I'm going to a bead show tomorrow.  Shocked Shocked Shocked  I'm going to see if anyone has Tila beads in metallic colors so I can make a metallic version of this necklace.  Grin

the bead show was a total bust.  I'll never be going to another Rings & Things bead show again.  guess I'll have to see if I can find another local one like the one I went to in Ohio.  it was truly AMAZING!!!  but for now, it's off to Etsy or Fire Mountain Gems & Beads for my Tila beads.  Undecided
