About this design:

These seed beads came in a mystery box from ebay, and there were stacks! I'd been thinking of trying a mega multistrand necklace for a while and with this shell (collected as a child) desperately wanting company, this seemed like the perfect marriage.

    I love the drama of the red! That shell is cool too. Did you add the design on it?

    The redness stands out partly because of the frame I put around the picture. About a third of those beads are tending towards AB violet colouring.

    And no, the shell is au natural. All I did was get my hubby to drill a hole in it for me, add beads, and VOILA :) )
