Long story short - I used to make beaded jewelry on a regular basis. Now I can hardly find the time. But in need of an N themed post, I pulled out my dusty box of beads and put together a new necklace.
At first, I was skeptical that I could create something worth showing on my blog. It's probably been a year or so, and my skills are a little rusty. Yet, as I was gleaming through my bead boxes, I happened to find a package of pretty wooden beads that I thought had potential. Beads that I had thought would never find a purpose seemed to pop out, and it eventually all came together.
6 Large Dark, Wooden Beads
12 Medium Light, Natural Beads ( I used Bodhi Tree beads)
2 White Round Medium Pearls (I used plastic ones)
14 Small Round Turquoise Beads
12 Chunks of Turquoise Beads
5 Medium Golden, Wooden Beads
1 Silver Decorative Clasp
2 Crimping Beads
1 Piece of 22" Beading String (I use Beadalon)
