What I am working on
June 29, 2010 at 9:56:52 AM
I have some leftover iolite stone beads, and want to make a matching necklace for this bracelet:

I published a pattern that uses such leftover beads in a short bead crochet tube, and I am going to use that technique to create the next necklace, but I might use a different chain maille weave for the chain.

I like the simple design you used with these beads.  Certainly, less can definitely be more, and IMO, it really works in this piece to let the beads speak for themselves!  Smiley

Having not worked in chain maille at all, is that a Figaro chain?  Are you planning on doing a variation of the weave in the photo for the next necklace?
