About this design:

This is a pearl necklace I made last year for my sister using LB Beadalon fine wire and antique gold bee findings. The preciosa glass bead spacers were mine.

    Such glorious honey tones! This is wonderful! Lucky sister! Does your camera do close up shots to see the details of the knotting and the bee tag? Would love to see a detail shot of those if you can get it. If not, no worries. Imagination is a fine thing, too.

    Thanks so much for the nice comments! EPB, you pointed out a glaring error that I must correct! :-o I actually did NOT knot the pearls, because I had the fire polished beads as spacers. So sorry! I forgot! Didn’t intend to mislead. I used the great Beadalon stringing wire and wire guards at the end of the strands.

Add your thoughts!
