This is Bev Herman’s Queen of the Sea pattern (www.noeasybeads.com). The focal bead is from Humblebeads (http://www.humblebeads.com/) using her six hole bead.
Now, I made the necklace with the spiral on the end as the pattern shows. But it just wouldn’t lay right on me. So….I whacked off the spiral and added more of the black agate beads to make it a choker. Oh, did I mention I decided to make this modification about 5 minutes before we were leaving the house to go somewhere…… I wanted to wear my new necklace and I wanted it short NOW.
I used a mix of flowers, leaves, gray pearls, and tipped each of the fringes with a silvery crystal bead.
The “peeking” picture is actually her looking through one of the drain holes on the edge of the patio. There is a brick wall around the patio with little spaces that drain water out into the flower beds when it rains – that shot was an accident, I stuck the camera down there and she got interested and “peeked”.
