    Are you using tiny beads or is that knotting I see? This is a lovely necklace as well.

    Stunning piece!! I love the how you were able to pull out the colors in the pendant for your beads. What cord did you use for this piece? It definitely pulled it all together.

    I used Irish Waxed Linen for stringing.

    The waxed linen and knotting is great in this design. Love the two beads hanging in front of the focal creating some extra interest for the donut. Love how your color choices and beads compliment the pendant rather than compete with it. May I ask what ply waxed linen you used?

    Sorry I didn’t list components used-I made this some time ago and didn’t have time to find my list when I posted this..I used Dark Choc. Irish Waxed Linen in 7 ply. The natural color stones are mine from a necklace I took apart; the turquoise squares are #12080 from Lima. I’d love to get a hold of more of this color of donut!!

    Poms Forever-thanks to my reading glasses and finger nails I was able to create those knots! I had to be consistent in the size, and the knots had to be tight for security.

    Nice mix of beads, that matches the pendant perfectly! Love that bunch of linen strands in front of the donut too!
