I haven't been able to get much claying in lately! Life if taking over again as we are looking for a mortgage to buy our flat, so far its been one problem after another so a much needed day out with friends was so needed.
|A Fringe Necklace|
I planned to wear a simple black chiffon top but as we was going from day to night I felt it needed something to jazz it up. I knew what I wanted to create in my head, it was a long seed bead fringe necklace in black, but despite my efforts I couldn't find a tutorial free or paid anywhere on the net. I needed to get started so I settled on a multi strand scoop necklace instead and set about threading my beads.

It took me three days to complete as I kept changing the colour scheme (an earlier version can be seen above) but finally decided on black and gold after I found a selection of gold beads from my old stash.

Another problem I had was deciding how to finish the necklace, some gold plated cone ends would have been perfect but as time was not on my side I had to settle for jump rings on this occasion, however cone ends can be added at a later date and I think my finished necklace goes perfectly with my top..
