My symmetry-loving friends (and Mom) may not enjoy this one as much as I did, but I'll take the risk. This morning has been a whirl of lists and emails and false starts and sketches and then I just stopped everything to make a long beaded necklace. The beads are glass and the "findings" are silver plated (the pieces that cup the large "firepolished" black beads) and sterling (the clasp.) Although there's no obvious reason why anyone would want a clasp for a necklace that hangs nearly to the bellybutton, sometimes it's fun to wrap it twice. So I like to offer the choice.
Now to try that new earring design I've been thinking about.
