I sat down and came up with 2 different pieces, that I couldn't be more pleased with!! This first piece, a bracelet is double stranded. Hand knotted beads are strung on black cotton cording, with small silver spacers in between the knots. Rings N Things sent me these glass skulls, and I picked out the one with purple and green accents and the black with white accents. I added in some purple barrel beads to add some color. Heavy ornamental chain makes up the second strand. I added some black leather ribbon from London to finish it off in a bow. I also received these sweet Tierra Cast charms and added this skull charm onto the cording strand. This actually turned out cute. Kind of even girly I would say!!
The second necklace is beaded, and the focal is a row of glass peppers. Flanking the row are 2 top drilled lucite rounds in a fun teal blue. One one side, a matte finish black scroll decorated lucite round, on the other- a black and white skull bead. I added some cream seed rounds for a nice contrast of color. The button clasp is made up from one of the Glass heart beads that I got in the Valentine's stash from R&T. February was a busy month unfortunately so I didn't get a chance to blog projects for the Valentine's bead grouping. So I threw in this red HOT heart to play off the peppers. Pretty clever eh? Makes me think of my darlin' who is a hot pepper fiend. He of course, REALLY loved this necklace.
