At the moment I'm liking my jewellery big and bold so I've been working on a few statement pieces. It took me while to make this necklace just because I knew what I wanted the finished piece to look like but I just had to figure out how to make it. I tried out a lot of techniques and different stringing materials but eventually settled on one technique that created the desired shape in the neatest way possible. The necklace was made in two stages, first I attached the rows of beads together using a fine gauge wire and then I threaded the rows together with clear beading thread so that the necklace would be flexible. I then finished it off with silk cord and a clasp.
