This necklace set was created for ‘the challenge’ in the Beadwork March/April 2013 issue.  I was lucky enough to be selected as one of the 4 people that were sent a STASH of beautiful beads and findings and then challenged to create something.  I was able to create mine over my trip to California to visit with my Mom and Dad.  Once I finished this creation it was then sent to Beadwork and they did their magic!  I was also asked to send a ‘little note’ about my creation, and here is what I wrote:

I used mainly peyote and herringbone stitches (for my creation).  I just couldn’t help myself, so I added more crystals and some other elements to the design.  The best part of this challenge was that I could create it while I was on vacation at my mom and dad’s home.  My mother taught me to bead when I was just a young girl and now that I ‘m an adult, it was wonderful for her to be able to see how I have developed my skill as a beader and for me to have her input on my deign.

Overall, I am so very proud of this creation.  It was not only my first time to be published, but the experience and creativity that it took as just as wonderful!

This necklace took over 47 hours to complete. I used peyote, square stitch and herringbone stitch to complete it. The stone and the Swarovski Crystals are FREE inside the frame, there is NO glue used to set the stones.

The beautiful stone sets inside beads that are between 11o and 15o (this means there are between 11 – 15 beads per inch).
