This is from the February 2005 issue of Bead and Button. I love it...it sparkles like mad. What I am disappointed in are the fringes. They simply do not hang/lay straight. I tried unwaxed Fireline and waxed Fireline; I tried stretching it unwaxed, then waxing it; I tried stretching it and using it with no wax. Bah! I wonder if Nymo would make the difference (although my beloved husband pointed out that, in the mag, her fringe didn't exactly hang straight, either LOL)

Anyway, it's Swarovski bicones, silver lined clear triangles, silver lined dark grey and light grey seed beads. I'm trying to find a way to get a very close-up pic that isn't blurry so you can see detail. If I get that done, I'll add it to this thread.

I think it's wonderful as it is. It's probably supposed to hang that way.  Smiley

Thank you for the nice words!
I should clarify about the fringe not hanging straight--I think it's the beads. They are silver lined light grey transparent (they look silver) but they are not Delicas. I think that their slight lack of uniformity tricks the eye. When I am wearing the necklace, the strands don't appear straight because the beads don't stack perfectly. Something I will keep in mind when I make the next one, for sure!

This is definitely something I would wear for any special occasion - this necklace would look perfect with a festive black dress. Loving it!!

Not everything is a success story but it's still a learning experience.
