Challenge theme: Five Alive

Posted on December 13, 2009 at 6:37 PM


The inspiration for this piece came from a necklacedesigned by Cindy Cohn and featured in a recent Bead & Buttonspecial. I loved the way she had reversed the direction of the cellinispiral midway and just had to have a go at it. I decided to do it in myfavourite shades of black and grey, adding a lava stone focal bead andthreading it onto lengths of suede thonging and chain. I really enjoyusing monochrome colour schemes and playing around with differentshades and textures so I had a lot of fun making this piece. Thischallenge called for five different elements and the five I chose touse were: glass seed beads, lava stone focal, nylon beading thread,metal chain and suede thonging.
