NY 180 - Transformed


This was my piece for Bead Mavens´ Bead Soup Double Up challenge. I was in pair with Cath Thomas, she sent me this "soup":
I love those beautiful purple sw squares. I don´t really like bezelling with peyote, so usually I use RAW with 2 needles and firepolished beads to make a tight setting that can be used as a firm base for further embellishing. I just did not like the results of my first attempts, so finally I made triangles from the squares. Then I just continued to "trasform" every crystal into a different shape than they were originally. Hence the name ;) (To be honest, I´m quite a lazy beader when it comes to ropes... I never liked monotone things... so I just made a very simple 4 stranded "random" necklace for the pendant.)

HI,Eva:-)
I also like Your jewels-I've discovered a great pleasure,watching and reading the previous pages of Your Blog.
Concerning the ropes-our feelings are similar:-),but when I see effects,my attitude towards monotony work alters very fast.I saw many beaded pendants on usual,metal chains and I came to the conclussion,that even the closure I prefer to make stitched,even if-clearly saying I don't like making those very important details.
The pendant and the necklace,You're presenting are real'masterclass!:-)
Warm Greetings-Halinka-
