Beaded Glory

About this design:

For those of you who like the look of the beaded bead, check out the beaded 'chain' in this large beaded necklace.

It's actually beaded bracelets that have been tied and knotted together, located on the side of the necklace. Also included are some wonderful white agate large disks, huge faceted onyx 'flying saucers', faceted onyx that are a little smaller, handpainted swirled wooden beads in shades of white/black/gray/gold (Wenche, like the purple ones I picked up for you), gray resin beads in various shades of gray, gray glass glitter teardrops, beaded beads in the same color family, coin pearls, hill tribe silver woven beads, and 3 beautiful gray triangular agate beads.

If you look closely, some of the larger holed beads were strung on black suede leather cord and knotted above and below the beaded chain.

    Hi, thank you all for checking this piece out.

    Yes, Lynn, it’s a large piece. I tried to put it on a neckstand and it kept sliding off, so I need to get a taller one. I’d say it’s about 24-26″ long and the beads are HUGE in some cases! :-) SLS

    Very nice, Shannon. Extraordinary and professional at the same time. Wish I’d had this during my suit and pantyhose days.
