|Wearable Art Necklace|
The top of this shell was broken but the rest of it was fine so I used seed beads to make am asymmetric freeform peyote feature bail.
Next I had some sari silk from Stef Francis which was just crying out to be used. A little wire with seed beads threaded on to it held the silk tassel in place.
It took me a while to figure out what to hang the pendant on. I'd just been focussing on one step at a time. Letting my ideas flow organically from one step to the other.
With my pink and purple palette of beads still laid out in front of me I figured I'd make a piece of seed bead rope until an idea came to me. Duh!
I threaded the rope through the bail and it hung beautifully.
