Egyptian Pallette

About this design:

I have never work with seed beads so I gave it a whirl. I have been collecting various shades of glass beads, stowing them away not quite sure what to do with them so I was inspired by a piece I saw and instantly knew I just had to try to make this necklace. I love they way it moves and lays on the neck line. I have had several orders for this.


black seed beads #11, 4mm black cube beads, Diamond and round glass beads with silver plating on the edges, Black gunmetal chain and lobster clasp, Black beading thread, black coated beading wire.

    Thank you all for your kind words! Believe it or not it only took me about 3 hours to make once I got started! I sometimes ponder over a project for hours.
