New in Febuary 2018

I was enjoying the hollow bead asymmetric neck pieces but realised we are not always in the mood for such large pieces so I made a couple of prototypes of a more "delicate" design. Both the cluster lariat and the choker are inspired by vintage pieces. I think they show potential and I hope to make some more soon. (I will also try to improve the lighting when I take the photos- the "pod" in the choker design is full of broken stripes in earth colours and the large hollow bead asymmetric neck piece is full of rich reds and golds)

I am experimenting with different strings for multi stranded neck pieces. I want some more natural products for those who don't want the black tubing (rubber, plastic, silicon? Who knows?). Here is a prototype using waxed cotton cord. The beads are to give the cord "weight" and I have tried a different pattern on each side.  I will next try rolled leather and maybe translucent beads on the stringing cord. This left over "hippy" prototype I will colour with alcohol inks to achieve a variegated effect. it would be nice to try some braided leather for the large hollow bead asymmetric necklace....
