Lariat in Bright Orange and Blue

About this design:

Winter is so drab here - so I wanted to make something bright and cheerful. Neon orange beads and bright blue beads caught my eye.

    I never know what to do with orange, but you have made it work in another beautiful piece. I’m always impressed at the amount of work that goes into each of your designs.

    Thank you both for your comments.
    KR -I actually didn’t realize how long it took to make some of my necklaces until I timed myself. For some necklaces I can use 8 or 10 beads and only increase the length of the necklace by 1 bead length. (and I’m not a slow beader)
    Thanks again.

    Definitely a necklace to brighten the day. Love the design and of course the bead work is superb.

    I once tried to figure how much time it takes me to do a beaded cuff but I start and stop and get interrupted so often I still don’t know how much time it takes.

    LRC – I know what you mean – I’m always jumping up to do something so I try to measure small increments.
