Hi all, I am finally finished. I worked on this late into the night many nights. I was so excited that I was actually making this, that it was being created out of my mind with my own hands. I still find it hard to believe that I did this. I really hope it does well in the auction next year. Check out this years auctions. Go to Ebay and do a search for Beading For A Cure. They put up new auctions every Sunday.
I had a lot of fun creating this. I think it is neat the way it looks like the seahorse is holding onto the seaweed. I also tried to make waves with the bugle beads. You really cannot see it in the pictures, but there are also bubbles coming off some of the seaweed. I really like the look of the Seamoss beading for the necklace part. I also only did the loops of it for the let side as I like Assymetrical. I also like how I positioned the lampwork bead on the right side.
Of course, the fringe does not spread out like this when it is worn, I just did that for the pictures. Please let me know what you think of my first bead embroidered necklace.
Thank you to Christi Friesen for her wonderful books and tutorials. The seahorse is done in her style. Check out her website www.CFOriginals.com. She has inspired me so much in a lot of my work.
