Its What You Know

About this design:

Sometimes when I am in a "design funk" I just go back to something I know, but add an element I've never tried before. I was inspired by a necklace I saw in the Fall issue of Stringing to create the kinda messy wire wrapped connectors with no beads & with E beads. The mookaite said "add me, too!" I made the clasp from wire as well.


Mookaite, craft wire

    Love messy! Sometimes adding a little surprise is just what is needed to make a standard design really great.
