March Art Bead Scene Challenge unveiled

The sari ribbon I was waiting for to finish my necklace arrived in the post today. The ribbon is beautiful with orange, purple and gold threads which really complement the crystals I've hand wrapped into the design.

The inspiration for this necklace is in the post here.

I've used paprika orange links and beads together with a lotus pod leaf metal and resin pendant from Shannon LeVart of missficklemedia. Her etsy shop is here.

I've also used a lamp work bead hand made by Ray Skene of Celtic Glass, click here to see his website.

So here goes...

I'll be able to upload these once I can work out Flickr!


  1. Hi Deb, what a beautiful necklace such pretty colors just in time for spring! ttfn L:)

  2. Very pretty, I like the way you wire wrapped your big rings with crystals.
    Flickr is easy, start your own photo stream to store your photos. They can then be transferred to any group you join, it is a smooth process. I am still working out further complexities from there, believe me, if I can do it, you can too!

  3. Love that MFM lotus pendant. I was drooling over it on etsy just yesterday :) That looks like a really fun necklace.

  4. So pretty! Thanks for following - I've got to make a start on my giveaway prize! I loom forward to reading more


  5. Beautiful, and looks like it took a lot of work and time!

  6. Thanks for all your kind comments, it did take some time and I may have got carried away with the wire wrapping but I am really proud of it. I also worked out Flickr! ;-)

  7. it's a beautiful necklace!

  8. Hi Deb! I am so glad that you were able to get a post up about this. I just added this to the ABS blog hop post. I love the bohemian quality to this. The colors are so warm and inviting!
    Enjoy the day!
