Because of K.H., to Harriet

About this design:

Thanks to our wonderful teacher last night, K.H., I came up with this necklace that I call "Circles of Hope". It made me think of Harriet. I have a separate line that's religious based and all of the proceeds go to local families dealing with cancer and head trauma. I thought of you Harriet because maybe you could do a "Circle of Hope" line, or similar and donate the proceeds to whomever or whatever. Just an idea. Thanks so much for teaching me this technique K.H....I so appreciate it!!


Seed beads, crimps, 7 strand wire and Vintaj brass ladder style chain from LB....which is an extrememly strong type of chain for those of you who don't like the wimpy weak chains. I pulled on it very hard and it didn't budge at all.

    Glassy chick…I learned how to do this last night from K.H. who posted a beautiful necklace in the design gallery. You just take seed beads and 7 strand wire and a crimp bead…..wrap the 7 strand wire through all the beads twice, and go 2 or 3 beads extra when you pass through the crimp bead. Pull tight, crimp and clip the extra wire. I found the easiest way is to put the crimp bead on the strand first, put so many seed beads on one side of it, flip it around and put the same amount of seed beads on the other side of the crimp bead. Then you start stringing your wire through the beads again. It’s easy once you get the hang of it.

    Please don’t give me any credit for this technique….I just learned it last night from K.H……thanks again K.H.!!
