Caught in the Net

About this design:

The netting technique looks complicated, but it isn't that difficult. I think it creates an elegant effect, especially with the Bali clasp. Really lucked out on that one--bought it in 2000 before the price of silver went way, way up.

    Laud….this is just beautiful. It looks museum quality from some ancient place far away. Between the detailed bead work and that clasp; you’ve captured something worthy a winning top prize for sure. Just fantastic. You should submit your work in one of the national bead magazines with this beauty.

    It really does look like a lot of work, but you would make it look easy. Your bead weaving skills are always the best! Gorgeous piece, Laud!
