About this design:

This necklace is made from clear glass beads and ultrafine colored wires. Colored wires are giving a interesting tone with clear glass.
I made this one quite a long time ago, it takes many trys before I learnt to take picture from this kind of design!

    Thanks for the response, Arja. I thought they were crocheted but wasn’t sure. I love how delicate they came out. The wire must be very thin.
