Something from the East

by: Lee Metsalo

This is a basic stringing project blending beads from two different points east.  Bali silver beads are like the LBD (Little Black Dress) Ė they make everything look good! 

If, like me, you canít wear yellow, try this necklace with turquoise, ice obsidian, turtirella agate, moss agate, carnelian, smoky topaz or red creek jasper.  All would work well!

The tiny 2 mm rounds between the beads give a nice spacing and make the necklace bend and drape gracefully - much like knots in a pearl necklace, but without all the knotting!

Wire guardians and crimp covers to finish the ends make for a very polished and put-together finished look.
 
Tools Used:  wire cutters, crimp pliers, flat/chain nose pliers
