As of late, I haven't been working with wire or jump rings much. Mainly I've been doing a bit of beadweaving. Here is one of my latest projects. Once it is finished it will be a necklace. I still have a bit of tidying up to do and add a clasp which has been an issue as I'm not quite sure which type would suit it best. Needless to say it is a double spiral stitch using pink and gray seed beads.
It was made with a purpose as I have a dress which has similar colors as well as black and white in it so it is meant to be worn with this particular dress. I have to say that I love spiral ropes whether in beads or jump rings. Both have such a lovely look to them. One day I shall really play around with different sizes and shapes of beads to make this rope. Spiral stitches always look gorgeous with a few Swarovski's thrown in too. I'm hoping to get a nice big shop in for some new jump rings soon. I know I can't be the only on out there that loves to make the odd item to keep all for myself. Share one of your items you made just for you.
