    Wow, this is beautiful. At first I thought it was a chainmail necklace but then I read you used 11/0 seed beads, I was amazed. I wish I could get the pattern. How beautiful.

    I thought it was chain maille when I first saw it then I read your description and found out it is bead work. Any way you look at it it’s a fabulous piece of work and a wonderful tribute to a great lady.
