I started this necklace for the Bead Buddies June Colour Challenge, which was Orange, Brown, Black & Cream.
I used 4mm Cats Eye Beads in Orange and Cream, 4mm Glass Beads in black, and an AB coated brown seed beads to make the twist. It is the same pattern as the Twisted Bracelet from a previous blog.
I was planning to make the clasp a button and a loop, as I often do, but here comes the mistake. I sewed a button onto each end !
Now, rather than cut it off and repair it, I took it as a challenge to adapt it in some way and make it different. So I made a double loop from seed beads which attaches the buttons together. Then I made a matching dangly to thread on between the buttons.
