Marina Azul necklace

About this design:

Wanted to make something to compliment the large Czech glass button. Tried to use all the colors of the sea, as I see them and create waves with the texture of the bead crochet rope.


Large Czech glass button, size 11 and 8 TOHO seed bead, magatama seed beads

    This piece is so beautiful. Your talent is one I envy as I wish I could do seed beading as you have done around your pendant and shell pieces.
