A friend of mine ask me to redo a necklace for her. I love the beads and wanted to make something very pretty for her.I took several pictures of the necklace so that you could get a good view of what I was working. As I said before the beads were beautiful and I liked the color. The necklace was two strands only at the bottom, so I had more than enough beads to remake a bracelet and earrings
With only two attempts(the first design, I was not pleased with. I placed the bigger beads together, which threw the weight of the bracelet off balanced). I made the bracelet on memory wire(my favorite method to make bracelets these days). Due the size of the beads, I only had three complete circle.
I was comfortable with this decision. My friend has a small wrist and could carry the look off.
After counting my beads(which is something I rarely do), I made the earrings to accompany the bracelet. If you can look closely, the tops do not match the bottom half of the earrings.
I think they came out rather good. My friend was pleased with the results and so was I. Sometimes, I have incorporate some of my own bead to complete a redo. Not this time. See how pretty the beads are?
