New necklace progress


When Sally was up in my neck of the woods a few weeks ago we went on a tour of the local charity shops.  I bought the necklace below because I really liked the beads.  Well what you can see is sort of half the necklace as I 'got at it' with a pair of scissors!!!  As you do, don't you?  As there are very few beads locally I tend to use the charity shops as my main suppliers for larger beads that are different.

This is what is happening to it!!!

The 'pattern' I'm using is a bit like the Winsome Drop earrings - but with attitude!!  You can see that I'm taking a long beaded picot around the bead as I go.  I quite like this - so far!!!
