Colorful Water Fall

About this design:

I finished this necklace a short while ago. It was stubborn and didn't want to work with me. But I prevailed!
Tomorrow is the street fair so I was trying to finish everything. I have to leave fairly early so everything that need to be done has to be done today. Poor Leo is going to be by himself for about 12 hours. Hope he doesn't chew up the curtains. My son is supposed to come by about noon to check on him and let him have a potty break.

    So very cool. This is potentially a very versatile design. I already have an idea to adapt this with a bracelet I have that fell apart that was pearl and crystal chips.

    More orphans you gave a happy home to. Now I know what to do with all those tiny beads…when I have a lot of time. Must have taken you hours. Love it.

    Thanks for the comments and compliments everyone. Y’all are a great group of beading friends. :D

    Deb, I have made this style of necklace in 4 or 5 different color schemes. It is very versatile and is great to mix or hang little charms or dangles on/in it. :)

    Nancy, I received my May copy of Bead Style Magazine in today’s mail…the cover necklace looks like one of yours.
