Harold Cooney Beads


It's been months if not more, since I made anything for myself. As I was sitting around surfing Facebook last night, I came across a picture of my friend Aja. She makes the most beautiful hollow beads- check out her shop Wandering Spirit. Anyway, she was wearing a simple necklace made with silk cording and some of her large hollows. I love it! So simple and it really showcases the beads. The beads are just tied in intervals along the front of the silk necklace. Nothing fancy.
I made something similar but used waxed cotton cording instead of silk and the hollows I used are from Harold Cooney.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
