I’ve been working on this project for a while: I started it in December, but got derailed until I found this nifty bead spinner to help me get that long strand done… and here it is!
You can see how long that black strand is around the back. That’s a lot of beads!
I just love it! It’s a project from Bead Crochet Jewelry (a book I highly recommend!
I used size 6 beads for the rainbow links, and size 8 beads (slightly smaller) for the black chain around the back. That difference accentuates the rainbow, I think!
It’s a real statement piece, and I’m planning on wearing it while teaching at Stitches South. Am I going to see you there?
