Cables

Standard

In preparation for the Art Tour I made several cabled necklaces.  The cables are really nice – they have a magnetic clasp which pops open with a strong tug.  Secure, but easy to wear.

I made several color ways of the triangle focals, some with simple crystal drops, like this one, others with more dangley dagger drops.  These were a lot of fun to make.   A palate cleanser from the type of beading I usually do.

These are made with a combination of peyote and herringbone; stitched as squares.  They are then folded in half over the cable.  What isn’t visible from the photos are the crystals which are sandwiched between the edges.  This gives a nice sparkle when viewed from the side.

I’m toying with ideas for hiding a little keepsake inside the triangle.  Photo.  Memento.  Grains of sand.  Essential Oil.  Will have to see what develops.
