Polkadot Spiral

About this design:

Looks like a few of us had the same idea about copper and turquoise...funny how that works huh? LOL I love the combo and decided to do a little dot pattern within this necklace.


8/0 topaz and turquoise TOHO seedbeads from LB, 11/0 metallic iris copper seedbeads from LB, antique gold Czech 11/0 seedbeads, fancy copper beadcaps, 6mm brown recycled glass beads from LB, copper chain and toggle clasp.

    The dot pattern adds interest to a fantastic design, and color combination! The copper chain finishes it nicely!

    Holy Moley !!! Now that is intensive bead work.
    I love it !! Great design and color scheme. It looks antiqued in the sense of something found
    in ancient ruins of the Mediterranean countries
    like Italy or Spain. Just gorgeous !!!
