With the Bead Star deadline approaching, (http://www.beadingdaily.com/beadstar/) I was really scrambling to choose the best piece for the competition. I worked really hard at vetting my own work. Gosh that's hard!
So, I scrambled to get the items in under the deadline, but all of my seed bead items are actually woven. Thus, they would be disqualified. My wonderful husband recommended that I actually design a piece specifically for the competition. I'm not sure why I didn't think of that, but probably because there was such a limited amount of time involved.
Behold the necklace of choice!
Fortunately, these are colors that I have with me all the time, I only needed to purchase the crimp beads. I love that the movement of the necklace is reminiscent of water, so it seems appropo to me to have the drops finishing the lariat ends.
