These are my ingredients from Susan who will reveal--on the 25th--what she made from the ingredients I sent her.
Are you ready???????
I've never done any work before with cord and decided to give it a try with this piece. I used a variety of Czech glass beads, Japanese seed beads, some freshwater pearls, wavy copper spacers (love these), kyanite,some stone briolettes (I don't remember the stone) and some lovely spacer beads from Keri Fuhr which I picked up from her at the Bead & Button show. All of this was knotted using a rusty orange S-Lon cord.
Here is a close-up of the pendant....I also used some enameled copper jump rings from Blue Buddha which I picked up last year at Bead & Button.
I made the S-hook (I still have to hammer it a bit but the studio is in shambles since last week when we got a ton of rain that also went into the basement where the studio is). I used 16 gauge copper wire and accented it with a finer gauge of gold-tone craft wire.
Here are earrings that I also made....I was on a roll and just loved the ivory spacers from Keri.
It's not done yet, but using the toggle from Susan, I'm making a bracelet with 8 strands of the same technique as in the neckstrap. I was on a roll....but duty calls...I must start working on the newsletter for the shop!
Hope you enjoyed the entree and the side. I hope to post a picture later this week of the bracelet.
