Lilacs By The Water

I have an actual finished beading project. The twisted triangle of 2 years ago is now a necklace. I've named it Lilacs By The Water.

I decided to go the easy way and did a Spiral Rope chain.

I put glass pearls and bi-cone crystals between the triangle and the chain.

It goes pretty well with the spirals in the triangle.

The clasp is a simple sterling silver toggle and loop.

The triangle is made with size 15, 11, and 8 Japanese seed beads and size 11 delicas. I want to make another one of them. They're fun. It's just a regular peyote triangle done with different sized beads to cause the undulation, or as it's more commonly known, Cellini Spiral stitch . If you are interested, the pattern is here: Gimlet. Be aware, it's in Russian.

I put a silver cone with a glass pearl on the bottom point with 5 seed bead fringes.

It's been nice putting beading back into my life.

What old beading project will I finish next? Hmm....

Live long and prosper. \\//
