This is a closeup of the necklace that I made yesterday. In addition to posting this closeup, I just replaced the photo I used in yesterday's post. You can see the new photo here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/randiart/13930294763/ . I am really happy with this necklace, and so I thought it deserved a better photo.

Here is a necklace I made today. I started with some beads that I bought recently, chocolate brown decorated with a cream-colored swirl pattern. Then I played around with the design, adding wooden beads in other shapes and shades until I came up with a design that I liked. I also used some gold metallic beads as accents. I used a stretchy acrylic cord, so I finished the necklace with just a knot (tucked inside one of the beads), rather than a clasp.

I made another necklace this morning, with wooden beads and gold metallic beads used as accents. This one was easy to put together because I used a stretchy cord (so no clasp), but it took me several attempts to get the design right. I hesitated to use the gold beads, but when I strung them into the design, something clicked.

This is the necklace I made this morning, wooden beads on knotted turquoise suede. The design is simple, but tying those knots is never simple.

But I am also going to use this image to send holiday wishes to family and friends.
