New Challenge Piece
This month's Etsy Beadweavers challenge theme is "A Study in Monochrome" and I had just recently finished an unusual necklace which I entitled, "World on a String" . I was trying out a tubular herringbone stitch with three different sizes of beads and ended up making the spiral portion. When I ran out of the large beads, I stopped the spiral and added a necklace cord. At the end of the necklace, I wanted something big and decided to cover a wooden ball to finish it out. It turned out to be one of those designs you can either love or hate. I'm on the fence, but I still think it's definitely "different" !
