I can not believe how long it has taken me to finish this necklace. I finished everything buy the tiny amount of wire work that needed to be done during the summer. And now it has just been hanging on my projects wall waiting to be finished. So Tuesday night I made a list of things to do and this was one there. I'm so glad it's finished.
I absolutely love this necklace. I used beautiful glass bugle beads that are a rich red color and then twisted, so they really catch the light. Then I have these great black beads. I can't remember what they are right now (I think they're blackstone, but I'll look when I get home). It really sparkles.
I also am addicted to beaded end caps right now. Every single multistrand necklace and bracelet I have been making are finished off with these. I think they are fun and interesting. So I used tiny glass seed beads to make matching end caps. And of course I finished this one with sterling silver wire and a sterling silver lobster clasp.
I am so happy with how this one turned out. I saw the red bugle beads and had to have them. I don't usually work with a lot of bugles in my beadwork because they can cut through thread. But I figured the bugle beads would have a hard time cutting through flexible beading wire.
I did get this necklace posted in my store. If interested you can check it out HERE. I'm calling it liquid fire because of the intense color and sparkle.
