Saved By Cindy

About this design:

When I did this necklace about a year ago or so, my friend Cindy saw it and liked it.Me on the other hand did not. I should of just given it to Cindy that night, not sure why I didn't. I think it was because I wanted to play around with it more. Anyways it got misplaced in my massive over stashed pile of stuff and didn't find it till recently. So I figured since I still hadn't played around with the design in over a year, just give it to Cindy because I knew she liked it. Before I lost it again. I think she wears it everyday. (Hugs Cindy!)


Ceramic focal, round, square, rings and rectangle beads, turquoise shell beads, brown druks, seed beads, and brass findings. All from my stash.

    Great colors together and an intriguing asymetrical design, Wanda. I’m with Cindy on this one – - love it the way it is ! (But like you, I have more than once finished something, then taken it apart and started all over again – - -)

    I love the colors and agreeing with Cindy, please save it as it is. I’m quite guilty of taking apart my pieces and sometimes I go back to the original one :D

    This is so cool. I am so enjoying seeing all the designs here. Its giving me ideas for things I’ve never tried to do and won’t require any special skills – just different types of designs than I’ve ever done before.

    And what’s great is I have plenty of beads to experiment with. And my granddaughter would really like them I think.

    I can imagine why Cindy likes it as is. Its very nice. I’d wear it a lot myself as its a perfect every-day but gorgeous style to go with jeans (my basic wardrobe).
