Carol is not overfond of big, bold jewelry so she opted for a delicate design using mostly seed beads - Widgets Beads collection at our recent workshop. What she did to make this necklace her own is the careful selection of both seed and cube beads of different colours and finishes. Some were metallic, others were clear, opaque and frosted. She grouped the colours in threes - odd numbers in design often work out best. Carol also kept the cubes in the middle. These are small differences but put together, Carol now has a necklace she likes and above all, will wear especially with denim and black combo outfits!

The beads were small to work with so Carol did not use a bead board. She found it easier to work on the felted tray instead.
