These pictures are of the commission I did for my friend and bead buddy, Debbie. She had the fabulous focal bead and asked me to do up a necklace, ala Sand into Pearls, (below) for her. I had a hard time with this particular bead because of the size and weight. I started and tore apart this necklace about three times before I finally finished it today. I hope she likes it. I'll be giving it to her on Thursday.
I was able to take this necklace to my Portland Art Collective Summer Picnic and show it off before giving it to Debbie. Everyone loved it and drooled over her bead.
I'm very pleased how well it was received and happy that Debbie liked it so much. This was a wonderful bead to work with and Debbie picked out the rest of the beads, crystals and pearls from the stock in her store (Bead Happy). It's too bad you can't see how beautifully it sparkles in the sunlight. This necklace turned out fantastically, if I say so myself! (wink, wink)
