I had the big green bead for such a long time and never used it, so I paired it up with some smaller beads and bronze wire to form a spiral. I added some other bigger beads as accents for the bottom part of the necklace and finished it of with a spiral rope in size 8 and 11 seed beads.
I also made a new custom closure for this necklace. I am sick of just an ordinary loop - this one is peyote stitch using size 15 and size 11 seed beads. I like it a lot. I love the whole necklace. It measures 18 inches plus the closure and the bead focal measures 2 3/4 inches. I think I will do some more of these!
