Josephine

Standard

IMG_3530Sinuous curves for the curvaceous Josephine.  Not the Empress Josephine, but Josephine Baker.

That’s what this necklace reminds me of: Josephine Baker performing in Paris Folies Bergere wearing her banana skirt.  Shimmy!  Shimmy!  Skake!  Shake!

I suppose it’s the green drops. I have seen them alternately called claw or petal beads.  They have a distinct curve.  Fun to look at, but requiring concentration to use if they’re all to curve in the same direction.

Right angle weave done with variegated mustard druks and accented by bright copper 15°s in between.
