Cathie loved the look of this Gypsy hand-painted bead and made it the focal point of her necklace.

Several things stand out with this design. Firstly Cathie chose to start off the necklace from this bead rather than suspending it as a normal pendant. The two halves of the necklace were left largely bare - the gold-tone beading wire perfectly complimented the gold highlights of the beads she used. Crimp beads were used to add two matching sections consisting of tiny seed beads, large round beads and extra long twisted black bugle beads. Definitely a one-of-a kind design by this artist.
