Southwestern Bling

About this design:

I saw the beautiful Amazonite beads in my stash and wanted to use them in a necklace. Then I saw the Metallic Wildflower seed beads and thought the would complement each other. Then the Star focal (in Turquoise!) The 11/0 metallic seed beads are really beautiful (and inexpensive). I tried to include some close-ups so you can see the great colors. They are remarkably uniform.


All from LB except the Turquoise star and Turquoise seed beads. 11/0 Seed Beads Metallic Wildflower Round and Turquoise Blue Matte, 3 mm Madagascar Amazonite Faceted, 3 mm Pearl Crystal Faceted Barrel, 6 mm Antique Silver Star Focal Bead, 12 mm Czech Glass Star Turquoise, 18 x 9 mm Tierracast Hammertone White Bronze Plated Magnetic Clasp

    Wow! This necklace is absolutely exquisite. The colors are beautiful and your choice of beads all come together so perfectly in the finished piece. Again, I just have to say Wow!

    Wow. A lotta work here, and fringe – now, do you find that the thread is constantly tangling and catching in the fringe? It drives me nuts, LOL. I love the blue star bead as the focal. I have no idea how you can figure out these designs with so many little beads.

    Wow. It’s all we can say!!! What an amazing necklace!! I agree that the colors are beautiful and the fringe is awesome! The first main picture with it laid out flat almost looks like a peacock feather. What a work of art!

    What a stunning necklace! The colors are so rich and that star really is too beautiful for words. All that fringe would drive me battier than I am!

    Gorgeous! Artistic beauty at its best. I love the carefree flow of the piece & the many long fringed ends. This is quite a statement necklace that reminds me of feathers blowing in the wind. Awesome work in design for the whole piece. Is this a take on the St. Petersburg stitch? I looks very complicated, but the results are beautiful. Outstanding Beady!

    Another masterpiece, Beady! At first I thought the centerpiece look like an eye, and then I thought of a peacock feather…without reading the title of your piece. Whoever, wears this unique necklace, will get lots of compliments.
