What I Am Working On

This is a new pendant - the cab is coral and I thought it should have some fringe. I may do more edging on it - not sure about that yet. I also need to figure out the necklace/rope. I am thinking maybe just stringing some nice beads as the pendant is pretty busy. I also started a bead embroidery cuff but no photo yet - it is just in the early stages. I need to get busy and do some serious beading. I have been doing a lot of reading lately and it seems when I read everything else just stops. Craft show next weekend I hope it is a good one ; )

Intaglio - Beaded Pendant and Necklace

Finished this beaded pendant and spiral rope necklace called Intaglio. I bought 3 of these copper disks which I have used as the focal - I paired it with turquoise, brown and cream colored beads. This is a bit longer than most of my necklaces - it is 19 inches plus the closure but I just felt it looked better at the longer length. I am not sure what I want to do next I know I want to start another collar but they just take so long to finish - I do have the design pretty much worked out so maybe it would be a good summer project.
