The next Bead Star entry I am featuring is "Seed Beads". "Critchfield", a family name, was created with Vintaj Natural Brass, and seed beads. This necklace took me forever to complete.
The colors in this necklace are much more vibrant than Bead Star photograph portrays.
The chain was the hardest part to complete in this design. Each jump ring is opened, beads applied (sometimes the beads do not fit making the process time consuming), then chained together.
I love making clasps out of Vintaj filigree. This is a new technique for me. Has anyone else ever seen this done?
Once again, I had horrible time taking pictures of this piece. Above, is the Bead Star entry photo. I think my jewelry is best photographed on brown tones.
