Black Precioso

About this design:

And with this one, it was the thought that a dark color of bicones would really make the design stand out. The result is even nicer than I expected, I might try dark red next or even sapphire blue...


Black SW bicones, SS seed beads and toggle clasp.

    Beautiful, Johanne. Between the color contrast and the pattern, this is regal.

    I like your idea of trying this in other dark colors. The contrast in this one between the black silver(?or matte gold–hard to tell from the pix) is so striking. Might I suggest another combo–dark bronze with cream-pearl seedbeads. I’ve done a herringbone tube in this color combo and it, too, is striking.
