Spiral Bound


IMG_3491Sometimes things just need to percolate for a while.  This necklace is one of those times.  I made the spiral focal ages ago, thinking to thread it on a length of cording or ribbon and wear it that way.  Didn’t look right.  Not happening.

So I put it aside.  For over a year.  Then it came time to clear off the beading table, because there was just too much stuff piled on it.  A new discovery!  The old spiral!

It took some playing around to decide how best to use this focal.  An afternoon was spent digging through the bead bins, auditioning one round lovely after another.  I finally hit on this combination.

It’s quite the mash-up:  glass druks, pewter, mustard jasper, glass coins, metallized beads and of course 4 different sizes of seeds.
