My first necklace! I used marbled green beads in 2 sizes (larger in the front and smaller around the neck), silver-coated wire, and simple wrapped loops for the connections. I really like how it came out (despite the fact that it doesn’t really go with my orange shirt here, haha). : )
Above you can see the wrapped loops connecting the smaller green beads. This simple project was a great way to practice my loops and wrapping, since I just did the same thing over and over again. My loops aren’t quite perfect, but I’m working on it!
For my next project, I want to make a similar necklace with these yellow beads that I picked up at Boston Bead Company this afternoon. More practice looping and wrapping…
In other news, Maggie had a near-escape on the streets of Cambridge yesterday (I was terrified!), but thankfully she’s safe at home now and getting back to her normal schedule (i.e., napping all day). Phew!
