Following on from the post where I showed you what I had received for my Secret Santa gift, I thought I should also show you what I made for my recipient, Tricia.
This was my selection of beads - everyone got the same, but in different colourways.
It took a lot of fiddling about to decide how I wanted the necklace to hang.
Or this way?
Or maybe this way?
In the meantime I got to work on the beaded part.
I strung beads on then wiggled in and out of them with seed beads.
This was the formation I finally decided on in the end, after lots of umming and ahhing.
I wanted something slightly different for the centre, but it also had to hang properly. Things can look very different when laid on a table. Cue: lots of trips to the mirror.
I used the large triangle button as a clasp.
As there was so many beads left I added in a simple coil bangle. Rather understated but matches perfectly :)
Then some earrings....
... and a bag charm.
Hope she liked it :)
