Cleo's Collar

About this design:

The colors in this set made me think of Cleopatra floating down the Nile. I can see her wearing this collar with a shimmery gold dress. This was my first attempt at making shapes with wire. I was a little nervous but I think they turned out pretty good.


Glass beads in cobalt, light turquoise, dark teal blue, lime and olive green. Glass beads are square, round, large twisted tubes, and saucer shaped. Wire work is round spirals and triangles.

    Well here it is. My first upload. Sorry the picture is not that good. Still learning what works and what doesn’t. Looks a little better if you click on ‘Bigger Photo’. Next one will show better detail. Promise!
