This necklace reminds me of the Rings of Saturn, halos spinning around a central core.
In fact, it was an experiment with some of the new bead shapes: o-beads and round duos. Round Duos are basically round beads with two parallel holes through them. The o-beads look like tiny glass washers.
The stringing pattern took a while to get used to. First you go round one way, then you go ’round another, then you move on to the next unit. Every time I picked this piece up, I had to stop and think what direction I was going. Sometimes the thought process did not cooperate.
There are four distinct colors which harmonize pretty well, I think. An iridescent purple, teal seeds, purple crystal and an olive green.
Since I was going off-pattern, the necklace also had a stitching vacation as I waited for more o-beads to arrive. And as these things usually go, the original supplier was out of stock, and I had to track down another one. Thank goodness there is consistency among these beads! One can expect the colors to match if they have the same number.
